(Bike) hiking near Pohl
The original location of the Pohl fort was at the intersection of two trade routes and served to control them. The Limes hiking and cycling trail runs along these paths. There are still numerous Celtic burial mounds, the Limes ditch is still clearly visible in the wooded areas around Pohl. Tower 2/25 (approx. 1 km) and the Holzhausen fort (approx. 10 km) are in the immediate vicinity. The 3-forts circular trail and other hiking trails lead through the southern part of the Nassau Nature Park.
The Limes fort Pohl is an authentic replica of a Roman wood-earth fort with a watchtower, according to the current state of research. The unique project offers visitors exciting insights into what was probably a rather inhospitable life on the northern border of the vast Roman Empire around 100 AD.
Well-trained tour guides are available for groups and school classes (starting at 10 people, at any time after prior notification). For day visitors, the »comes electronicus«, an electronic companion on your own smartphone, is also available.
With the exception of the upper floor and the balustrade of the tower, the fort is barrier-free. Free (hiking) parking spaces and mobile home parking spaces are available. In the museum café you can recover from your journey of discovery in and around the fort and enjoy a Lucanian sausage, for example.
