Welcome to the LImeseum and Roman Park Ruffenhofen

The LIMESEUM is a Roman museum that opened in 2012. It is located on the grounds of the 40 hectare Roman Park Ruffenhofen, an archaeological park. There, plantings indicate the location of individual buildings from Roman times. This includes the Roman Cavalry fort, one of many on the Limes, the outer border of Rome.

There is also a mini Fort in the Roman Park, a replica of the Roman cavalry fort on a 1:10 scale. In addition, a replica of the facade of a Roman house with an accompanying garden can be found in the Roman Park. The proven Reitersoldat December could have lived in such a house after his service time.

The Roman Park also has a  playground, a labyrinth, a café with a shop in the museum and easy parking.

Zeitszenen - Time scenes

Romans and many other stories

Roman everyday life is playfully presented with Playmobil figures. In addition to very small everyday scenes, there are some larger representations, such as a Roman amphitheater, a sea battle or a fight between the Romans and the locals on the other side of the Limes. The highlight of the special exhibition is an approximately 10 square meter timeline with selected scenes from the first living creatures to dinosaurs, the Stone Age, ancient Egypt and Greece, Roman times and the Middle Ages to the present day. An exhibition for young and old!
