In English: The Limes was a roman fortification, a palisaded fence through Central Europe which seperated the Roman Empire from the Germanic tribes of Northern Europe. Along the Limes various fortifications were found over the years, one of the recent excavations was the now so called Limeseum. It's pretty new and fits nicely into the landscape south of Nuremberg and it's well worth a visit, especially for travellers who are not really familiar with European history in Roman Empire times. The story of the Museum is based around the life of a regular Roman soldier named December. Very nicely told, and well suited to schoolkids and students! http://www.limeseum.de/ A small Cafe is in the building, various Franconian guesthouses in the villages around! The museum can be reached with Public Transport from Nuremberg, check here, Station Wittelshofen: http://www.vgn.de/ plus a half hour walk. It offers a charging station for E-Bikes, and is well suited for wheelchairs.
