Saalburg - A reconstructed Roman fort

The Saalburg is a reconstructed Roman fort in Hesse. Inside its walls, a museum tells about the life of the soldiers along the border. The castellum was a part of the Upper Germanic-Rhaetian Limes. Today the remains of the Limes are enlisted as UNESCO World Heritage Site. [German]

Reconstructed decoration along the fort's wall

Interesting! A small part of the reconstructed wall shows the complete decoration of the fort’s wall. On the outside, it was whitewashed and painted with a trompe-l’œil pattern of ashlars.
