Archaeological Museum: History of the Roman Equestrian Camp

Itis in today’s Aalen that the greatest cavalry regiment of the Roman army lodgedon the other side of the Alps till about 200 AD. A fortified camp, castrum wasbuilt for it, in which the Roman soldiers lived. They took a bath here, as therewas a hot spring nearby. Presently, the spa complex Aalen Limes-Thermen is atthe place of the spring. An archaeological museum was opened on the site of theRoman camp in 1964.

Thisarchaeological Roman Museum is the most important in the wholeBaden-Württemberg. It is included in the UNESCO list. Walking through itsterritory, you can see the foundation and masonry of the ancient Romanfortifications (Limes), as well as utensils, weapons, statues – the Romancopies of Greek scenes and sculptures of Ellad gods. Experts have reconstructedhere the Roman barracks, a Roman construction crane, with which the ancientRomans built heavy-duty constructions.

 

Ingood weather, the Langert hill, where the ruins are, offer wonderful views ofthe surrounding area. Every two years, the Roman festival is held here: mendressed like Roman soldiers defile before the audience of more than 10 000people.
