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.

  • It is a reconstruction on the site of border garrison of the Roman Empire. Yes, from the Romans fundaments houses and all steel again rebuilt. And let no Russian guide and description in Russian too not met, but the exposition of the Museum is very pleased. And all this, that presented, found here. Astounding how many people left their traces and how differently now, we look at these findings, which dumped in wells, like trash. With special respect begin to look at the great empire. How many interesting and unusual was done by the hands of people living and officials here on the outskirts of the border.

  • This fort gives you a much better impression of what the roman lifestyle was like compared to just seeing pictures in a museum. It is impressive to walk up the front gates and go through them as the R...  more »
  • The Saalburg is one of a few reconstructed forts of the Romans, unfortunately not quite faithfully. Sponsored by Kaiser Wilhelm (and paid?). By now a much visited museum with actions. Exhibits from the area have been issued. Since childhood, has much improved and is a beautiful focal point again and again.
