  • Especially the Roman excavations and the remains of the Castle are worth a visit, a clear explanation anywhere!

  • I can no longer count how many times I've been to the limes Museum. With the parents, relatives, friends, school, education, again led the way in the limes Museum. Over the years it has changed and it was renovated, modernised and made much more plastic. You can not only look and read, but also experience and is in the midst of the world of the Romans and limes. A great thing for families or groups of friends to the discover. Always the Roman days with super great events and attractions are a highlight.

  • The museum is closed till 2018 but still a nice walk checking out the roman ruins. As you walk through the cemetery you think of all the roman ruins just buried underneath you.  more »

  • We visited during the renovation of the main museum but the small museum opened instead gives a good overview on Limes in a short amount of time. You can also visit the ruins next to the museum without any issue.
  • Great ruins and low key/not crowded place. Although main museum hall is closed until 2018, smaller building had a room for kids with cool swords, shields, and chain mail armor that was a hit with my son. This is a UNESCO site for good reason being an important and largest Roman fort north of the Alps.
  • The museum is very informative. We enjoyed dressing in Roman clothing and chainmail. The ruins are huge and well documented. The grounds are wonderful to walk through.
  • Open air museum...2000 year old..
  • only for German speaking
