We went with a couple of friends with a small kid. The place is pretty nice, lots of things to see. My friends told me they periodically hold events of archery and others. The restaurant inside is pretty interesting. I recommend.

I visited this castle in a rainy afternoon but still got fascinated by it. Is an amazing historical site and explains a lot about the Roman military experience.

Once a thriving frontier community on the norther fringe of the Roman Empire, the Saalburg stands recreated on the original fortress foundations. A statue of Caesar Augustus greets you at the gate, surrounded by 1100-year-old ruins of the local community of shops, a temple and...More
