Meet the Romans in Aalen
Two thousand years ago, this part of Germany was Frontier Country – the frontier of the Roman Empire. Learn more about the Roman occupation, both militarily and sociologically, at the Limes Museum in Aalen. Located in what was once the largest Roman cavalry fort north of the Alps, this is also the largest Roman museum in Germany. “Limes” (pronounced Lee-mez) means “border fortification” in Latin. 50 miles/80 km east of Stuttgart.
