  • Long and museum well worth a visit. I found very exciting, especially Museum the story with the children of that time. Silver jewellery and reconstructed facilities are here to admire nature.

  • Lots of walking with mediocre signage about the "right" starting point. Beyond that, this place is beautiful and well worth the five seconds of playing the "which way do we go?" game. If you even slightly like history and/or ruins then do whatever it takes to get here.
  • Excellent helpful staff. Good value. Sometimes queues cab be long but it is worth the wait. Quality and knowledge are always worth a few minutes of anticipation
  • +++ fantastic place - alone, with family - interesting to find out more about the roman history in the area an nice just for a walk as well.
  • Augusta Raurica is the Latin name of a Roman town in Switzerland, located ca 20 km east of Basel. There is a lot to see here. To visit the museum and the Roman house you have to pay. Acess to the remaining parts of the Roman town is free. The site is open daily 10-17. You can visit the whole site in 4, 5 or 6 hours. If you are interested in the history of the Roman Empire, this place is definitely something for you. PS. Transport from Basel to the Roman town: bus number 81 will bring you to the modern village of Augst in 21 minutes.
  • Open air cocert area. Very impressive place to go
