Tips

  • Ralf Kaidel

    The Roman estate (Villa rustica) was found in 1970 and explored in 1972-74. The Roman villa dates back to the period between 130 and 260 AD. At that time, the entire area was probably forest-free.

    In the middle of the forest you will find the foundations of a former Roman settlement.

    Very interesting to walk here in the footsteps of the Romans and learn about the Roman settlement of this area. Definitely worth a visit here.

    Interesting and, above all, impressive. A map (which should be renewed in the meantime) shows how big the original building was or the yard. A detour to it is worthwhile in any case.

    The archaeological investigations of the manor lasted until the 1980s under the direction of the Kurpfälzisches Museum Heidelberg. The remains of the building are dated to the first half of the second century.

    In the center of Wiesenbach, about 2km away from this highlight, wall sections of another "Villa Rustica" were found, which are visible in the townscape, but could not be further investigated.
