Between Butzbach and Pohlheim
The rampart of the Limes fort is in a well-preserved state over long distances north of Butzbach. The reason for this lies in the fact that it was later used as part of the territorial force.
Important finds from the cohort fort and the related civilian settlement can be visited at the “Museum der Stadt Butzbach” (Roman section in the vaulted cellar).
WP 4/33 on the Schrenzer, southwest of Butzbach, is clearly visiblebecause of a reconstructed wooden watchtower. The foundation walls of the younger stone tower have been conserved. In front ofthis is the reconstruction of a part of the Limes palisade. There were two forts in the district Butzbach. One of them was at the northwest village border, about 700 m behind the Limes, and was popularly known as “Hunneburg”.
The small fort Degerfeld, which had to watch over an important Limes passage, was directly located at the Limes. Remains of both forts and of the Limes are no longer visible.
