Roman Museum Haus Bürgel



Haus Bürgel is located in Monheim am Rhein and has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2021.

Located in the Rheinaue Urdenbacher Kämpe between Düsseldorf and Monheim am Rhein, the former Roman fort Haus Bürgel has been home to the Roman Museum since 2003. The historic monument also houses some preserved wall remains of the Lower Germanic Limes and is even recognized as part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

In the museum's permanent exhibition, visitors can look forward to numerous archaeological finds from Roman times. Late antique finds such as jewelry, combs, ceramics, tools, weapons and coins were recovered during archaeological excavations at the end of the 20th century and can now be discovered in the manor house and in the south-west corner of Haus Bürgel. These not only tell stories of this place, but also bring the occupation policy, everyday life and the military system in the Roman province to life again.

When the weather is nice, the archaeological outdoor path invites you to have a picnic in the historic kitchen garden or to explore former buildings on the site.
