LWL Roman Museum in Haltern am See

In Roman times,Haltern am See was one of the most important camps in Germania on the right bank of the Rhine. This was the logistical hub for all operations and military planning in Germania. The Lippe played an outstanding role as a transport route. It connected Haltern am See not only with the "metropolis" Xanten, but also with the Rhine and the eastern camp "Anreppen". Up to 5,000 soldiers were stationed in the main camp alone during the peak times. This included the fateful 19th legion, which was destroyed in the legendary Varus Battle - a turning point for the whole of Europe.

A day with the Romans - an exciting family experience

In the LWL Roman Museum, old and new finds from the Roman camps on the River Lippe are displayed under one roof. Results from almost 100 years of archaeological research can be experienced here. More than 1,200 original exhibits bear witness to the highly developed culture and technology of the Romans: their enormous building achievements and logistics, their craftsmanship and everyday Roman life far from home.

Participation, touching and trying things out are expressly encouraged; audio stations and videos allow visitors to take part in events that moved the world at that time. And even the daily news reported from the year 4 AD. All exhibits are explained in detail and offer a lively insight into Roman times.

A building site with special views

The Aliso Roman construction site is just as impressive in its depiction of Roman life at this site 2,000 years ago. Let your gaze wander from the 156-metre-long wooden earthen wall and immerse yourself in Roman times with the virtual binoculars on the wall. A great experience for the whole family.

Insider tip

Inclusion is writ large

The LWL Roman Museum is intended to be a museum for all people. Therefore, great importance is attached to inclusive equipment. The museum is accessible for wheelchair users. A disabled WC is just as much a matter of course as a video guide for the deaf. The large wall in the Aliso camp can be reached via a 60-metre-long ramp. This has been integrated into the structure as if the Roman master builders were still working on the timber-earth wall here.
