Saalburg Roman Castle and Archeology Park, Bad Homburg

4.5
#1 of 15 in Things to do in Bad Homburg
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.

    We have seen fortress in the rain, which however is not devaluation. Only, just when weather is nice, the experience is greater. Because it is a free air conditioning, an umbrella is attached. When the sun comes out it will quickly warm. The plant is good to expire after an hour to 1 1/2 hours. Anyway, East evident, what was technically implemented already at the time of the Romans, today's technology is just more sophisticated.
