Today Worms fiercely competes with the cities Cologne and Trier for the title "Oldest City in Germany." The city of Worms is the only member from Germany of the Most Ancient European Towns Network. Multimedia Nibelungenmuseum opened in 2001. A yearly festival in front of the Dom, Cathedral of Worms, tries to recapture the pre-Christian period's atmosphere.

In 2010 the synagogue in Worms was firebombed. A Molotov cocktail was thrown at one of the windows and 8 corners of the structure were set ablaze. There were no injuries. Minister-President of Rhineland-Palatinate, Kurt Beck, condemned the attack and promised to mobilize all resources to find the perpetrators.
