Hiking Highlight (Segment)
A beautiful, but possibly a bit monotonous hiking trail, which is always preferable to the wide forest trails. You don't get much of the Limes itself. There are also no signs or anything like that about the Limes and its history.
The path goes very well, is a little steeper in places, but is easy to walk at any time. Larger clearing areas along the way allow beautiful views of Wehrheim and Neu-Anspach.

The Limes adventure trail leads from Saalburg Castle to the Hollerkopf.
The route of the Limes adventure trail corresponds to the routing of the Limes hiking trail or the Limes bike hiking trail and is marked by a stylized Roman watchtower. In addition, signposts for the Taunus Nature Park provide better orientation.
The Limes runs through the entire Taunus from west to east and marked the outer border of the Roman Empire. For around 200 years - from the end of the 1st century to the second half of the 3rd century - the Limes protected the Taunus foreland, which was part of the Roman province of Upper Germany. The border system of the Limes includes, on the one hand, the actual border line, which was marked by ramparts and ditches, by a palisade or occasionally by a wall. On the other hand, it consisted of numerous watchtowers erected within sight and hearing distance of one another and a system of smaller and larger forts.
