  • Roman fort Abusina in Eining

    The fort is located about 3 km south of the end of the Limes at the southern edge of Eining. During Roman times, there was an important road junction there. Eining is the most completely preserved fort in Bavaria. The visible wall sections belong to different building periods of this site which had been used for a very long time. Apparently, fort Eining was not abandoned when the Limes was cleared in the 3rd century A.D., but became a part of the Limes of the late antiquity, which was formed by the Danube until the 5th century. The fort was reduced during that time. As a consequence, there was only one fortification at the southwest corner of the site. The history of this site is conveyed to the visitors by a high number of new devices; starting point is an information pavilion. So-called “Zeitfenster” (time windows), walk-in steel frames with texts and reconstruction drawings, put, acoustically accompanied by sounds, certain parts of the fort in the limelight. There was no direct visual contact possible between Eining and the end of the Limes beyond the Danube. This was made possible with a watch post on the Weinberg, 2 km northeast of Eining (remains of staff quarters and a small temple are still visible today as debris ramparts at the edge of the forest). North of today’s village was a military camp with an area of 11 hectares during the Marcomannic Wars at the end of the 2nd century. Its west front reached as far as the Danube. The northern moat of this site is still visible today as a strip of wasteland which is planted with trees. It is located east of the district road which crosses the camp.

  • Hienheim: Reconstruction of a watchtower

    Hienheimer forest: The remains of a watchtower are preserved, as is part of the ruined Limes wall. Watchtower 15/42: Ruin of a stone turret and the circular ditch of the wooden tower is visible. Along the Hienheim-Kelheim road: There is a modern reconstruction of a wooden watchtower with palisade fence. From there you will find a good view over the Danube valley to Eining. To the east of the road stands the Hadrian column, which was erected by King Max II of Bavaria to mark the end of the Limes.
