[D]: Das Nibelungendenkmal: Das Nibelungenlied – Heldenepos aus dem 12. Jahrhundert Wie sie nach Bechelaren kamen: Da ging der Markgraf zu der Herrin. Seine Gemahlin war mit seiner Tochter zusammen. Er sagte ihnen zugleich die freudige Botschaft, die er vernommen hatte: Dass die Brüder der Herrin Kriemhild in ihrem Hause einkehren wollten. Das Nibelungendenkmal wurde 1987 errichtet. Dieses Monument zeigt 16 Mosaikwappen von Handlungsorten aus dem Nibelungenlied. Das Nibelungenlied erzählt auch von einem Markgraf Rüdiger von Bechelaren und seiner Gastfreundschaft. Um die Tradition der Nibelungen in Pöchlarn aufrechtzuerhalten, findet alle zwei Jahre ein Nibelungensymposium statt. Das Nibelungendenkmal wurde künstlerisch gestaltet von Heinz Knapp und stellt einen Bezug zum europaweiten Friedensgedanken dar.
