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.
