Owner description: 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.

The archaeological park is fantastic. Years of research make this a very accurate reconstruction of Roman life. The baths are amazing, the temperature actually increases as you move from room to room and they are heated the way the Romans would have done it. The two other home restorations are also very well done. Carnuntum was a very important Roman city and a visit is well worth the time. It's about 40km from Vienna.

Found it to be really informative, extremely well laid out. Excellent signage. The re-construction has been very well done, and one gets the feeling of actually living in those times. Found it to be amazing at how advanced the Romans were and the methods they used.

“Insight into Roman culture with a great guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

My wife and I (from Ohio) spent time with friends in Austria. Our friends took us to Carnuntum. Since our German is pretty bad, they found a Carnuntum guide, Anita, who gave a tour in both German and English. Anita was excellent, relating both to our Austrian friends and us. Her English was quite good and she explained details of Roman life that we never realized before, even though we have been to a number of Roman sites in England. Anita was especially good with the children in our party, bringing them all into the picture with puzzles to be solved (like identify the toilet in this room) and dressing several of them in the garb used in the baths (these were great photo opportunities of the children). The Carnuntum experience was wonderful and Anita was fabulous. You also need to see the Roman amphitheater down the road and practice your gladiator skills with shield and helmet. Much of the original amphitheater is intact, including the VIP seats.

“Well rebuild Roman city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

The site was a positivy surprise to me. The museum gives a good overview of the big Roman city that was once present but has disappeared completely. To aid the visitors, there is a huge model of the city and several houses are rebuild in full and are in function to show the visitors the Roman way of life. Well done.
