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.

  • Ideal for excursions with children or for adults only. Here it is returned in the Roman period. Particularly interesting are the events at the Saalburg

  • The Saalburg is a real eye-catcher. After so many years of service, she is still top in shot. It offers many interesting relics in museums, but also a great Park. I would combine the visit here with an event. These can be found in a calendar on the website. Access is relatively easy. The navigation system for directly on the car park of the Castle. Please watch but the speed limit, because a fixed speed camera is close to the Castle and to mobile cameras are built. The entry is measured with €5 per adult, I think. I personally would leave here only from spring, because the Park is then green and also the sunshine makes the experience even nicer.

  • Superb Roman camp, the entrance fee is modest, the buildings and collectibles are worth visiting. The young and old will enjoy whether you're a fan or not from the Roman period.
