Tips

    The Saalburg fort is a reconstructed Roman fort directly on the Limes, which separated the Roman Empire from the “barbaric” tribes in the north about 2,000 years ago. The fort also secured the pass of the same name in the Taunus main ridge, the strategic importance of which the Romans were already aware of.

  • The archaeological excavations at the Saalburg began in the mid-19th century. From 1894, the ancient studies Louis Jacobi led the excavations and from 1897 to 1907 the reconstruction of the fort, promoted by the antique enthusiastic Kaiser Wilhelm II. For the reconstruction Jacobi oriented himself to the designs of ancient models, so that the existing parts of today's plant an approximately faithful to the original impression Offer. Today, the complex houses the Saalburg Museum and a research institute. Around the reconstructed fort they tried to rebuild a Roman landscape with the camp village, temples, sanctuaries and public buildings. To visit today are so among other things, the Jupiter Column and the Temple of Mithras. In 2005 UNESCO included the Upper German-Raetian Limes and thus the Saalburg in the list of world cultural heritage.

  • The Saalburg is a replica of a Roman fort and houses the corresponding museum. There are still some finds from Roman times in the area, the Limes in particular is clearly recognizable. At the same time a popular place to cross the Taunus ridge by bike or a first stopover if you want to go further up.

  • Former Roman fort, worth seeing from outside and inside, from here start numerous paths in the Taunus, e.g. to the Hessenpark, to the Herzberg ider to Sandplacken.

  • This Roman fort was reconstructed. In the fort is a museum with rare finds. Worth a visit in every season. In winter, it is pleasantly warm inside.

  • Upper slope path, section from Saalburg to Sandplacken. Paved climb through the forest. Fantastic to drive.
