  • Limesmuseum with archaeological park

    A branch of the “Archäologisches Landesmuseum Baden-Wuerttemberg”. The Limes Information Centre Baden-Wuerttemberg is located in the entrance area of the museum. The largest South German museum on the UNESCO-World Heritage Limes is located on the site of Fort Aalen. Covering an area of 6 hectares, this fort is the largest military camp on the Limes. The museum provides comprehensive information about the Limes, the forts, the structure and weaponry of the Limes troops as well as the civilian settlements in the hinterland. There is even something to learn about the Roman ideology of rulership. Many original finds, informative texts and graphics as well as numerous models provide an illustrative and lively picture of the lives of soldiers and civilians on the Limes.

  • Roman fort

    Particularly attractive is the archaeological park on the site of the
    fort. The visitor awaits remains of the walls of the staff quarters
    and of the left side gate, a high number of replicas of Roman stone
    monuments and, finally, a former partial reconstruction of an equestrian
    barrack in its original size.
    This is how everyday life of the Ala II Flavia, which was stationed in
    Aalen and comprised of 1000 cavalrymen, comes alive again.
    Modern multimedia presentations, a multilingual audio guide and
    especially the museum’s comprehensive educational programme
    complete the range of offers.
