Scene from "Siegfried" (photo © Constantin Film)

It was a dark time, when the river Rhine was red from the blood of the innocent, a time of death, a time of endless battles for the legendary treasure of the Nibelungen... a time long forgotten.

But it was also a time of noble knights and true heroes. The river Rhine has seen them all, back then and still today legends tell us of their bravery, but one of them was the bravest of them all....

He, whose return the oppressed long for and who is feared by all dark forces. The bravest of the fearless, the hero of all heroes, Siegfried!

After centuries full of lies, it is time to finally tell his true story...
