Bike Touring Highlight
This watchtower was reconstructed on the site of the former Roman fort Zugmantel to remind visitors that they are here on the former northern border of the Roman Empire. This border was secured by the Limes Germanicus or the Upper German-Raetian Limes. To the north of here lived the so-called barbarian tribes. The Romans never managed to subdue them. The expansion of their vast empire came to an end here. The Limes stretches for several hundred kilometers from the Main to the Rhine. Nowhere are his traces so well preserved as here in the Taunus.
