  • Karte - Kapersburg - Wehrheim
  • Kapersburg

    The ruins of the fort and the related bath house are clearly visible.
    Kapersburg belongs to the best preserved Limes forts in Hesse.
    Particularly impressive are the two conserved fortification gates
    within the defence wall. Of the staff quarters in the interior of the
    fort, the standards shrine and parts of the formerly heatable scriptorium
    of the administration are visible. Furthermore, the remains
    of the walls of the granary are recognisable. Between the Limes
    and fort Kapersburg are the conserved foundation walls of the
    thermal bath building next to a spring.

  • Small fort Kaisergrube

    East of Pfaffenwiesenbach is the small fort Kaisergrube. Its defence
    walls are clearly visible as a high rampart with upstream moat on
    the south side.

    Cohort fort

    There is evidence for the existence of Cohors I Biturigum equitata in
    the stone fort which covers an area of 3.2 hectares and lies below meadows
    and fields. The so far only large stone building of the camp village was
    found together with a pottery kiln and the cemetery in the east at
    the road to Friedberg. Fort and camp village are no longer visible.
    The last visible evidence of the presence of the Roman military is a
    building stone of the Legio XXII Primigenia Pia Fidelis from the fort
    location, which has been built into the wall on the south-east corner
    of the parish church in Langenhain-Ziegenberg.

  • Watchtower 4/16 on the Gaulskopf

    East of Pfaffenwiesenbach is the small fort Kaisergrube. Its defence
    walls are clearly visible as a high rampart with upstream moat on
    the south side. A bit further north is the reconstruction of WP 4/16
    on the Gaulskopf. The foundations are particularly strong and
    equipped with buttresses, which hints at an enormous height of
    the tower and makes its function as a signal tower likely. It is possible
    that there was visual contact with a tower of similar function
    on the Johannisberg in Bad Nauheim.
