  The way the romans came

Just a few miles out of Osnabrück you will find the area where the Varusschlacht (Varus Battle) between the Romans and the Germans took place in the year 9.

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!!!

Location: In Kalkriese which is a part of Bramsche which is a town close to Osnabrück. The address is

Venner Strasse 69
49565 Bramsche-Kalkriese

See and read more on my Osnabruck page!
