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????

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.
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
