Odenwald’s Roman roots

The Odenwald area of Germany was once a Roman frontier – just like Falkirk district back in Scotland.

You can visit a number of Roman sites around the Odenwald area, including a replica watch-tower, just outside the town of Erbach. Watch-towers like this would be part of the frontier system built by the Romans.

You can find out more about the Odenwald Limes here and here.

A report on the Odenwald Association’s visit to Limes sites in 2018 is on The Falkirk Herald website. There are also pictures from the visit below.
