Information

The fort, which was rebuilt over 100 years ago, stands on the elevation of the Saalburg Pass in the Taunus. In the past, it guarded the former border of the Roman Empire, the Limes. Surrounded by the ruins of a Roman village and reconstructed sanctuaries under old trees, the Saalburg conveys the impressive atmosphere of an archaeological landscape park.
