Reisen für Alle

9 A.D. LARGE PARTS OF GER­MANIA ARE OC­CU­PIED BY RO­MAN TROOPS, WHEN PUB­LI­US QUINC­TILI­US VARUS AND HIS ARMY ARE AM­BUSHED ON THEIR RE­TURN MARCH TO THEIR WINTER CAMP. THE MAN BE­HIND THE PLOT IS THE CHERUSCAN LEAD­ER ARMINI­US.

The 17th, 18th and 19th le­gions are mas­sacred by Ger­man­ic war­ri­ors in the space of a few days. The tra­gic de­feat has gone down in his­tory as the “Battle of the Teuto­burg Forest”.

The Battle of the Teuto­burg Forest near Osnab­rück is today an in­ter­na­tion­ally pur­sued area of re­search. The ex­hib­i­tion brings the his­tory of this unique site to life and presents an up-to-date over­view based on 20 years of re­search.

Ar­chae­ology, ar­chi­tec­ture and a per­man­ent ex­hib­i­tion form the three pil­lars of the pro­ject, which has re­ceived nu­mer­ous awards and was giv­en the status of European Her­it­age Site by the European Uni­on. Spe­cial ex­hib­i­tions, events and in­ter­act­ive activ­it­ies make it well worth a vis­it.
