  • Cohort fort

    The fort is below the 544-meter high “Grauer Kopf”. With a size of
    only 1.4 hectares, it is one of the smallest cohort forts (infantry
    units) on the Upper Germanic-Raetian Limes. It is one of the best
    preserved forts with foundations. The visible remains present defence
    moats, fort corners with installations, gates and the standards
    shrine. The remains of the fort vicus can be partly perceived as slight
    elevations in the area. The military site of Holzhausen is situated at
    the border between the Nassau Nature Park and the Hessian Rhein-
    Taunus Nature Park.
