The ancient Roman city of Carnuntum which once stood at this location has been reconstructed with painstaking detail by the archaeologists. You enter through a museum which has a replica of the ancient burial road complete with Roman tombstones. Next is a short video presentation...More

Yes, they really have rebuilt some of the city of Carnuntum. For a history buff and someone that has read quite a bit on the Roman Empire this was spectacular. They also plan to continue building (on the original foundations) a full city block. A...More

See what a small Roman town would look like in 4AD. Archaeologists have spent years unearthing fragments of life from then and reconstructed buildings, baths, toga shops, dining halls, and general living spaces. Enjoy a leisurely walk inside and around the grounds. Small museum.

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.
