History

Over 2000 years ago, in today's Windisch, Vindonissa, the roman camp for legionary was found. Over time over 10 000 civilians settled around the camp. The 6000 legionnaires got ready for their missions to issue the roman emperor's commands. Today the remains of the only roman legionary camp in switzerland can be visited.

Visit Vindonissa

The legionnaire's path takes you to the days of legionary and officers. Hidden locations of roman history are made accessiable through modern techniques. Themed tours and audioguides guide you to a sunken mediterranean officer's kitchen or the roman thermal bath, which was recreated with lights and flavours. Highlight is the still working water pipeline from which the fountain gets its water. The military hospital gieves you a view on how antique medician worked with herbs, unguents but also surgical instruments.

You are welcome to stay overnight and enjoy antique food at an open fireplace and games from the earlier days.
