About
Roman City of Carnuntum From the 1st to the 4th century AD, Carnuntum was a significant Roman metropolis on the border of the Roman Empire. Carnuntum became the capital of the province of Pannonia Superior with about 50,000 inhabitants, making it one of the biggest cities in the northern Empire. Because of its militarily vital location for securing the border and its proximity to key trade routes Carnuntum blossomed. Our goal is to vividly present the history and basic scientific research associated with the Roman City of Carnuntum. Antiquity comes alive again in the Roman city quarter with its reconstructed ancient buildings as well as in the amphitheaters and Museum Carnuntinum, the city’s treasure chamber.

Fantastic recreation of a Roman city
Sep 2020
You probably have been to history museums before - here you can walk through a number of re-created Roman houses and public buildings. You really feel 1600 years younger. Total immersion.
Not to be missed, you will discover facts you never knew before.

A creative insight into Roman life.
Aug 2020
This Roman city archaeological park is excellent, very reasonably priced & well worth a visit. It's only 45 minutes outside of Vienna & provides a welcome break from Vienna's buzz. The excavations are mixed with historically accurate (as much as they can be) reconstructions & give a wonderful insight into life in Roman times. The park is spacious with open grass areas & trees for shade & also has a reasonably good cafe. We visited this Coronavirus summer so attendance was down I'm guessing but we appreciated the space. I'm guessing during school term it may be busier with school groups. The ticket also includes the museum & gladiator school.

Interesting program close to the Hungarian border
Jul 2020 • Friends
The Roman City of Carnuntum is a good and interesting program close to the Hungarian border. The place is nice and clean, and it gives many information of this old civilisation. The staff is friendly.

Ruins and reconstructions
Nov 2019
An interesting concept. Archaeological excavations mixed with reconstructions of several typical Roman buildings (villa, bath complex...), similar to Villa Borg in Germany or Arbeia in England. The interior color schemes are taken from frescoes and mosaics found in the area. There is also a bookstore and AV presentation and a cafe which features dishes based on recipes by Apicius and other Roman sources. Unfortunately, the museum associated with the site is about three miles away, and since we had not traveled by car we could not go there in the time we had allotted. The site is an easy train ride from downtown Vienna.

Interesting - not just ruins!
Oct 2019 • Friends
This was an interesting place. Not only do you see a lot of ruins in what was a very large settlement, you get to see a replica of the Roman baths and several Roman buildings rebuilt to original plans and using authentic materials. We were there a couple of hours. A lot of very good information, especially if you bought the booklet for 1 euro... well worth buying!!! Different and enjoyable.

Expieriance a Roman Village, walk where they walked
Sep 2019
My wife and I have visited hundreds of Roman ruins all over Europe. Yes we have walked the grounds of many historical sites, but we had never expierianced the the first hand walk through a Roman village. It is well worth the drive to visit here. Nice restaurant onsite also.
