The Limes is a 2000-year-old Roman wall that extends from the Rhine to the Danube. Modern archaeologists believe that it was used to mark the economic boundaries of Roman land rather than forming a defence against outsiders. The name is given to this historic landmark because the word ‘limes’ once meant ‘border path’ in Latin.
There are many ways to explore the wall, including a popular tourist route known as the German Limes Road and the 500-mile hiking and cycling path. The wall stretches more than 340 miles from Rheinbrohl to Regensburg and provides those exploring it with many great finds along the way. There are reconstructions and information boards to learn from and spectacular views of the surrounding countryside to enjoy. The route also takes you through a variety of towns and villages such as Kaisersbach, Hüttlingen and Kipfenberg, where Roman-related events sometimes take place.
