"Varus Battle ~ 9 AD" Kalkriese by sabsi
Kalkriese Travel Guide: 9 reviews and 27 photos
Just a few miles out of Osnabrück you will find the area where the <b>Varusschlacht</b> (Varus Battle) between the Romans and the Germanics took place in the year 9. It was a victory for the Germanic tribes over the Romans. The Roman General Quintilius Varus fell at the hands of Arminus (Hermann der Cherusker).
In April 2002 an excellent museum was opened here which shows the whole story of the battle in a very exciting and creative way. There's a viewpoint on top of the museum tower and you can walk into the field where the battle took place probably. I'll soon add a travelogue to this page as I was really impressed by the whole place so I have to show you more!!!
- Pros:One of the most exciting museums I have ever been to!
- Cons:In the middle of nowhere!
- In a nutshell:If you are in the area you shouldn't miss this place!!!
