From Saalburg Castle, the Limes Adventure Trail leads to Hollerkopf.The route of the Limes adventure path corresponds to the routing of the Limeswanderwegs or the Limesradwanderwegs and is characterized by a stylized Roman watchtower. In addition, signposts of the Taunus Nature Park provide better orientation.The Limes runs through the entire Taunus from west to east and marks the outer border of the Roman Empire. For about 200 years - from the end of the 1st century to the second half of the 3rd century - the Limes protected the Taunus foreland, which belonged to the Roman province of Upper Germania. The boundary line of the Limes includes, on the one hand, the actual borderline, which was marked by ramparts and ditches, by a palisade or occasionally by a wall. On the other hand, it consisted of numerous watchtowers built within sight and earshot of each other and a system of smaller and larger forts.
