Deutsche Limes-Straße


  • Wörth am Main

    Located in the Main Valley at the foot of the
    Bayerischer Odenwald; possesses a historic centre
    with a beautiful old town hall (1600) and unique
    buildings made of mottled sandstone in the Neustadt.
    Its development has been closely connected
    with the shipping and shipbuilding industry.
    The UNESCO-Geopark-Culture-Trail, reopened in
    autumn 2004, leads over a distance of about 10
    km past the two Roman forts, which brought
    together the “Odenwald Limes” and the “Nassen
    Limes”, and offers a magnificent view of the scenic
    Maintal with its wooded crests, flood plains
    and vineyards.

  • Numerus fort

    There was a numerus fort (0.8 hectare) at the northern exit of
    Wörth. It is likely that the so-called Odenwald-Limes starts at
    Wörth. The fort is located in the fields, directly east of the ring road.
    An observer with a trained eye can perceive the former garrison
    when he looks at the slight bumps in the terrain.
