A Celtic ornamental knot was the basic idea for the graphical design. The building interprets this knot spatially by a continuous band of concrete. Its unmistakeable shape makes the museum a landmark and consciously creates a positive tension between it and the Fürstenhügel.
The band of the knot embraces and focuses the burial mound, where the statue of the Celtic chieftain of Glauberg was found. The knot not only symbolically connects the landscape park and the princely grave with the Glauberg plateau: it is also the start and end point for a visit to the archaeological park of Glauberg.
