Römerkastell Saalburg Archäologischer Park (DE)
The Saalburg Roman Fort Archaeological Park is an in situof a Roman Fort from the 2nd century AD. It is part of the decentralised county of the County of Hessen and a research institute. Since 2006 it has been part of the UNESCO World Heritage Upper German-Raetian Limes.
Today, the Saalburg Roman Fort regularly arranges practical activities presenting everyday life in the Roman provinces, often closely connected to the military organisation. Some of our most popular activities are Roman , baking, presentations of clothing and weapons, military exercises, handcrafts et cetera.
It is the aim of the Saalburg Roman Fort to give our visitors a vivid picture of the history, culture and customs of an era whose heritage – although almost two thousand years old – still shapes our world today. It is meant to be a place for learning outside the school with a specific didactical approach based on scientific research: See it – experience it – join in.
