Villa Rustica

Visited Hechingen-Stein 72379 / Germany [again] to take another look at the reconstruction of a Roman Villa Rustica. It’s a large Roman countryside estate from the 1st to 3rd century AD that was discovered in 1972. The excavation site was turned into a museum with reconstructions on the original foundations.

It’s a very huge areal including smithies, a mill and even a dedicated temple area that can probably finally be visited starting next year. Plenty of the local findings can be seen in the museum. Visitors can move freely on the areal and discover plenty of interesting stuff.

The place is also a lof of fun for the children. They offer plenty of games, costumes, a playground and ice cream of course.
