Impressive reproduction of a Roman fort as an open-air museum

The Limes fort Pohl is an authentic replica of a Roman wooden-earth fort with a watchtower, according to the current state of research. This project, unique in the world, offers visitors exciting insights into the probably rather inhospitable life on the northern border of the huge Roman Empire around 100 AD and is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Upper German-Raetian Limes. History to touch! You can experience and discover the Limes Castle in many different ways: we offer excursions into Roman history for day visitors, but of course also for travel groups and school classes. The fort can also be used for celebrations and conferences. The focus is on the ensemble as an open-air museum with a fully equipped contubernium, but we also recommend the special exhibition "Mainzer Römersteine" in the basilica and the exhibition room, which was extended in 2019 and focuses on local Roman history in the area of Marienfels, Hunzel, Holzhausen and Pohl. Especially since these places are easily accessible from the Limes Fort - just like the nearby Lahn with the towns of Nassau and Bad Ems. The wonderful low mountain range landscape of the Nassau Nature Park is free of charge.
