This Roman fort, built in the early 2nd century CE during the reign of Emperor Trajan, was rebuilt more than 100 years ago. The ‘castellum’ stands at the height of the Saalburg Pass in the Taunus low mountain range in the German state of Hesse. With its strong walls, where ca. 600 soldiers lived inside, it watched for ca. 150 years over the ancient frontier of the Roman Empire, the Limes. Several times a year there are Roman Days, where visitors can experience Roman life for themselves a bit.
