  • Großkrotzenburg at the Main

    The history of Großkrotzenburg goes back about
    6000 years, which is proved by numerous archaeological
    finds. The municipality offers leisure facilities
    such as trails, a forest nature trail, a lido or
    an indoor swimming pool. Different festivals and
    markets take place every year.

  • Cohort fort

    Parts of the defence wall of the cohort fort are visible in the area of
    the town centre of Großkrotzenburg. The southwest corner of the
    garrison as well as the medievally reworked corner tower are visible
    near the church. At the entrance of the church are parts of the south
    wall which have been preserved. The Limes ran past 20 metres east
    of the fort wall. The piled foundations of a Roman stone pillar bridge
    in the Main, which were erected in the 30s of the 2nd century, are
    sensational. To this belongs also a station of the beneficiarii on the
    banks of the Main. The Roman finds from the fort and the civilian
    settlement are displayed at the Heimatmuseum (museum of local
    history) next to the church. This also serves as the Regional Limes
    Information Centre for the Main-Kinzig-Kreis.
