    The Ostkastel Welzheim in the Rems-Murr-Kreis, with its open-air grounds of an archaeological park, offers the ideal location for communicating Roman history on your own doorstep. The reconstructions and stone sculptures complete the information signs for a perfect introduction to Roman everyday life. In addition, the visit to the Ostkastell during an event can become a time travel to the Roman era.
    Inform yourself on this page about the pearl of Roman culture in the middle of the Germanic forests of the Swabian Forest Nature Park.

    This freely accessible free open-air museum provides detailed information about the life of the Romans on the Limes as well as the architecture and beliefs of that time. The Limes itself is also described here.
