Saalburg Roman Castle and Archeology Park, Bad Homburg
(4.5/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Debuting as an open-air museum in the 19th century, Saalburg Roman Castle and Archeology Park provides a journey back to an ancient Roman province. When the Roman Empire was at its peak, this location housed 600 soldiers in its garrison and almost 1,500 townspeople. The grounds included a guesthouse, baths, and taverns. The fort was rebuilt next to the archeological site where artifacts from the settlement were found. These artifacts are stored safely in glass cases in the main museum structure; the rest of the pieces in the displays are recreations. Purchase a ticket that includes admission to the Celtic World at the Glauberg to learn how the native people lived outside of the settlement. Make a stop by the Taberna restaurant in the museum to experience the tastes of ancient Rome.

  • Visit badhomburg just need to history buffs. There is a castle and fortress was last German Kaiser saalburg, which is part of the defensive fortifications of the limes-. Castle is well preserved and has been restored. Excursions are offered on it telling about the history and culture of the Romans. Once a godmozheo get on role plays, it will be very interesting for children prove to be in the thick of things and feel like a legionnaire. Keep their children here and they will be interested in history.
