The time of the Romans in Carnuntum is not in the long-ago past, which can be seen by a few remains of walls, but it is the present which can be experienced with all one's senses. Today you can saunter in the footsteps of Roman emperors who wrote world history 1700 years ago. Public baths which are heated all year round entice you in the reconstructed Roman city quarter, the amphitheatre and the gladiator school take you back to the world of gladiators, and timeless treasures in the Museum Carnuntinum are witness to the former inhabitants' zest for life and culture.

Carnuntum is well worth a visit, but it is also a must-see for Austrian school classes. So if you are visiting in term time you may wish to avoid hordes of children. The classes tend to return to their buses in early afternoon. By visiting...More

It is easy to overlook Carnuntum unless you are within 10 miles of it and happen to spot a signpost. Although it is obviously new the reconstruction has been done to an extremely high standard, with some of the original artefacts on display inside and...More
