The Saalburg, in Roman times a fort with a camp village on the border of the Roman Empire to the Germanic tribal areas, was rebuilt around 1900 on the initiative of Kaiser Wilhelm II. The facility, which is unique in the world, belongs to the Limes UNESCO World Heritage Site.
You can see the complete enclosure, stone and wood buildings and reconstructed ovens. Staged rooms, models and archaeological finds illustrate the living and working world of the soldiers and the population in the village just outside the gates. A tour of the Saalburg gives visitors a good insight into the history, culture and way of life of the Romans.

Built in the reign of the Roman emperor Trajan at the beginning of the 2nd century. AD, the castle served for 150 years as a base for the border guards. The 600-strong second Raeterkohorte protected from here from the Limes in the Hochtaunus. After the withdrawal of the Roman troops fell into the Saalburg and was only in the middle of the 19th century. again noticed and dug up. Emperor Wilhelm II had the castle rebuilt 1897-1907 as a research institute and open-air museum faithfully. Under old trees were replicas of Roman sanctuaries and village houses, which corresponds to the romantic idea of an ancient landscape. The Saalburg is today part of the UNESCO World Heritage "Obergermanisch - Raetischer Limes". In the TABERNA palatal joys are offered for sale from the Roman kitchen. We recommend!
