Deutsche Limes-Straße


  • Commune Mönchsroth

    Count Hermann von Leiningen donated lands in
    the “Bachgrund” of the Rothach for the Benedictine
    Monastery Hirsau at the beginning of the
    12th century. This developed into another monastery
    at the end of the existing village of which
    the church St. Peter and Paul as well as parts of
    the circuit wall have still been preserved. The Limes
    runs partly visible, partly not visible, through open
    field, south of Mönchsroth, to the forest near the


    Former monastery church, limes tower.

    The Limes reaches the Bavarian border on the road Mönchsroth-Eck
    am Berg (end of the Limes-line 12 / beginning of Limes-line 13). A
    bit further east of this road are large remains of a tower (WP 13/1),
    perceivable as a flat hill. South of Mönchsroth: partial replica of a
    stone tower (WP 13/2).
    South of the road Mönchsroth-Wittenbach in the forest “Unterer
    Espan” are the remains of a stone and wooden tower (WP 13/3).
