    Osterburken is the location of the best preserved
    Roman fort in Baden-Wuerttemberg. The Römermuseum
    comprehensively informs about the
    UNESCO-World Heritage site Limes.


    The parish church St. Kilian is with its concrete
    sculptures by Emil Wachter a special attraction.
    The church St. Mauritius with its remarkable medieval
    frescos is located in the district Hemsbach (2
    km). The remains of the former Cistercian monastery
    Seligental in Schlierstadt (5 km) invites you
    to a visit.

    Limes, branch of the Archaeologisches Landesmuseum Baden-

    about the Limes. Finds from the Roman border from North Baden-
    Wuerttemberg but also from the Odenwald-Limes are exhibited.
    The focal point of the exhibition is the culture of the Romans and
    the Germanic peoples along the Limes, but also Roman religion and
    the bathing culture.

    numerous wooden finds and consecration stones – are shown here.
