Experience Romans live – in the heart of Westphalia!
Haltern am See 2000 years ago. One of the most important Roman bases is on the north bank of the river Lippe. From here the famous Roman commander Varus tried to conquer the area to the east of the Rhine. One of legions which perished in the Varus Battle of 9 AD was stationed here: the Legio XIX. The name of the camp: Aliso.
Today's LWL-Römermuseum is on this exact point. Over 1200 finds from the entire area give a vivid impression of the Romans' highly developed culture and their everyday lives far away from home. Here this time – the highpoint of Roman power in Germania – is brought back to life.
You can experience the world of the Romans live in this modern museum with its reconstructions of buildings on the Aliso Roman building site – even digitally.
We are looking forward to your visit!
