Overview
More
The time of the Romans in Carnuntum is not in the long-ago past, which can be seen by a few remains of walls, but it is the present which can be experienced with all one's senses. Today you can saunter in the footsteps of Roman emperors who wrote world history 1700 years ago. Public baths which are heated all year round entice you in the reconstructed Roman city quarter, the amphitheatre and the gladiator school take you back to the world of gladiators, and timeless treasures in the Museum Carnuntinum are witness to the former inhabitants' zest for life and culture.

This place is a very interesting travel back in time where the Romans had a settlement in the area. Allow yourself a whole afternoon so you can see all.

This is 3 places. A reconstructed part of a Roman city -10-400ad - along with a small museum and an amphitheatre. Well worth an hour or two to see one of Rome's farthest outposts. The reconstructed buildings are simply wonderful and charming. A great stop...More

Sorry, but why can't they sell tickets to just view this location? No accommodation for on the budget travelers.

Carnuntum is well worth a visit, but it is also a must-see for Austrian school classes. So if you are visiting in term time you may wish to avoid hordes of children. The classes tend to return to their buses in early afternoon. By visiting...More

It is easy to overlook Carnuntum unless you are within 10 miles of it and happen to spot a signpost. Although it is obviously new the reconstruction has been done to an extremely high standard, with some of the original artefacts on display inside and...More
