  • These are the ruins of the oldest Roman colony on the Rhine. There are ruins here that have been dated back to 6 BC. That alone makes it pretty cool. Several areas have been excavated. For example, th...  more »
  • Very interesting tour, a little walk between sites. Start with the Museum and then monuments outside.

  • I love all this ancient Roman ruins some original and some others that have been restored to show what they looked like, with plenty of facts and information. Be prepared for a bit of walking as there is plenty to see all sprawled out, with no particular starting point. Showing how vast and far the Roman Empire spanned and reached. Interesting, enjoyable and educational day with a bit if history.
  • Roman ruins in Switzerland. Have visited Augusta Raurica twice now. Once for the annual Roman Festival (Römerfest Augusta Raurica) they have every August and just the other day. The festival was excellent. Well spread out, and lots to see. Had gladiator battles, cavalry chases, a legionaries march and loads of informative and interactive stalls. Only downside was that I was with the family and was fun, but it was so hot and there was next to no shade so we had to leave early enough. Also it was quite crowded and a little difficult to get a good view of the activities at times. Went back last week, as we wanted to see what the animal park was like. Well it was rubbish. A few birds was all that was there to see when we were visited, and it wasn't worth the effort to trek from the station to see such a small park. Embarrassingly bad! So with that we decided that we might as well have a look at the roman ruins and all. See whats it like when the festival is not on! So we walked a bit in the direction of the museum, and saw the Theater, which was impressive enough to see, and something we didn't get to see last time out. Got to see the forum temple and the Roman house again which was a different experience sans crowds, nice and pleasant, with the long grass and gentle breeze. I did want to check out the sewers as it looked cool but we were getting tired. After a few hours of walking we decided to call it a day. Overall when taking the two visits into account, I think the Roman Festival is definitely worth checking out. Its fun and has a lot to see and do. But on a day with nothing special on at Augusta Raurica I think I'd pass.
  • Nádhera! Beautiful place! Do You like history? IT IS the right place to visit.
  • Interesting area with a lot of educational information. A walk around the entire site makes for a fun day, with some exciting discoveries along the way.
  • Very interesting, ancient history well maintained, silver antique pieces exquisite.
