  • Karte - Öhringen
  • Forts (overbuilt)

    Öhringen belonged with its two forts and a big civilian settlement to
    the most important military bases at the Limes. Visible Roman architectural
    remains are no longer existent, particularly as the ancient
    settlement area has been mostly built over by modern buildings.

  • Sculpture park with replicas

    Worth seeing: park with replicas of Roman stone monuments in front
    of the entrance of the district hospital; there is a small exhibition
    about medical care in Roman times in the entrance area of the hospital.

  • Weygangmuseum

    Weygang-Museum: Roman finds from Öhringen and Limes-Container,

  • Watchtower 9/51, 57 u. 64 between Öhringen and Mainhardt

    Remains of rampart and moat of the Limes north of WP 9/51. This
    WP at Gleichen has a hexagonal floor layout – a rarity at the Limes
    between the Rhine and the Danube. Probable survey point for the
    “determination” of the perfectly straight Limes-line over a length of
    80 km in total, view over a distance of up to 45 km.
    The Limes-line is visible as a grove from WP 9/64 at Geißelhardt
    and south of the former inn “Römergraben” onwards. Replica of a
    wooden Limes tower included.
