I have visited other Roman historical sites - mostly in England and they were fascinating. This restored fortification really helps to see the place as it might have been. The sheer number of artifacts and breadth of information in the various displays all over the fort are amazing.

Had an afternoon before my flight the next day and decided to check out this place. Lots of history on the area and the life in the Roman Era of rule. Excellent exhibits but only about half of them had English in the signs to understand what the significance of the piece is about. It is a combination walking inside... More

Only@ 30 minute drive from Frankfurt airport. The history is amazing and all ages will enjoy the park and displays. There is a restaurant nearby as well as Hessen park open air museum just@7 minutes drive. Both are great to learn more about German history

If you visit in the Frankfurt area this will be the place you don't want to miss. Part of the Castle was restored the rest is the original construction.. The visitor can really feel as if he was there 2000 years ago .

AS you walk into a dark and richly deep forest in Germany, near the small German Town of Bad Homburg, you come upon a stragneg wall, of earth, and stockade and then you see a Roman statute, near a gate gouse, and as you walk thrugh the two door arch, you pass from the present into the world of ancient...

My husband asked in Germanabout a tour and the response was " we only have tours in German!!!" When we asked about further events going on that afternoon that we had read... More

It is worth the visit, the way is reconstructed, the history and the exhibitions. Want the inside the castle walls or the outside can make a nice walk. Some explanations are in English.

Beautiful castle takes you to the time Romans was in power and showcases their living style, architecture, food habits, governance style etc. It was too cold there (compared to the city) and you need to spend a lot of time walking around in the open. So, better cover yourself up well!

The tour is done at your own pace. Some of the exhibits are in English although best to have someone who can read German. The best part was the film about how the fort was built over the 166 years the Romans held territory in Germany. The film has 2 versions one in German and one in English, so if... More
