Saalburg Main Gate (Porta Praetoria)

The German Limes Road is a hiking and bike route in Germany, approximately following the erstwhile boundary of the Roman Empire.


It roughly follows the Upper Germanic Limes and Rhaetian Limes (part of the Limes Germanicus) from Rheinbrohl (Neuwied (district)) to Bad Gögging near Regensburg.

Along the route you can see remains of the earthworks created by the Romans as well as a number of modern reconstructions of towers and forts.
