Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 220+ 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.

  • Lots of interesting exhibitions and insight into life of Roman soldiers. Heavily reconstructed but probably not too fanciful, according to experts. Unusually high quality items in the museum shop. 
  • Thanks to a large hall with Maltischen, gespitzten (!) Pens and coloring pages when it rains with beautiful babies. Recommended the Roman sausage in the tavern. Making good seasoned thirst but!
