This is where the Roman general, Varus, & his 3 legions were ambushed & massacred over 4 days in September 9AD by German tribes under the leadership of Arminius. The museum is relatively small considering the impact it had on the Roman world at the...More

As a lover of archaeology, I'm probably biased, great site and moment in history. You can really imagine the battle in the surrounding woods. Although the museum doesn't really cater for non German speakers like myself, was't a problem for me as I know the...More

If you love history, anthropology, and archeology, you have to visit this museum and site. It will take you back to 9 AD. Not only is the way the Romans came recreated, but you will also walk on the paths of the Germanic peoples. The...More

The museum is very interesting. The grounds are eminently walkable. One can envision the movement of the troops--both by walking along the road and especially from the top of the museum tower. Why aren't there MORE tourists checking out this amazing place????

This world-class site, built on archaeological discoveries made only since 1987, has the official support of the European Union. It can be argued that the battle fought here marked the end of the expansion of the Roman Empire. Strange, then, that the interpretive materials are...More

Nice and interesting museum with exhibits indoors, a viewing tower and outdoor exhibit. The museum tells in an interesting way a dramatic story that had become important to Germany. Focus is multiculturalism and the importance of respecting the differences of others.

This is a fantastic historical site and museum. There has been a great deal done to make this a family friendly attraction. As an adult visiting there is frustrating mix of fantastic exhibits displayed well set along side exhibits which are poorly explained. I do...More

Since I was a kid I have always been a fan of history, particularly everything Roman. I've visited Rome, Trier and a host of other Roman sites, but only recently did I get to visit Kalkriese. And frankly, I wasn't exactly blown away. With the...More

If you are interested in Roman exhibits,this is not perhaps the best Roman museum to visit, in view of the looting that took place after the annihilation of the 3 Roman legions by Arminius in 9 AD. This is with the exception of the Roman...More
