Tips

  • Vanessa Kopp

    In Roman times, the Saalburg was a fort that served to monitor a Limes section in the Taunus. The Limes formed the border of the Roman Empire for about 150 years to the tribal areas of the Teutons. Today, the fort is turned into an interesting museum. You can explore the terrain on your own or with a guide. A guided tour lasts 45 minutes and costs 2 euros. For entry to the Roman fort you pay 7 euros. The museum is open daily from March to October from 9am to 6pm. During the winter months, the doors will remain closed on Monday. All further information can be found here: saalburgmuseum.de.

    For historically interested a detailed, loving insight into the development of the Limes defense line from about 200 n.C .. Entrance Fees (12.2014):
    Adults: 5 €

    No bikes on the premises!
    Be sure to bring a high-quality lock, as the bike racks are positioned a bit off the cashier next to the parking lots.

    The Saalburg. A castle from the Roman period in which there is a museum where you can learn all about the region on the Feldberg. There is ample free parking.

    Old Roman fort - lovingly restored and a tourist magnet in the Taunus.
    If you go there by bike, you should take a solid lock, because bicycles are not allowed on the premises.

    Very nice fortress.
    Unfortunately, you can not get so close without paying admission because the fortress was fenced. But worth a visit in any case.

    A "must" is the museum with its many finds from the time of the Romans.
