Start of the tour is at the parking lot at the Saalburg. From Bad Homburg there is a bus every hour. You can now first visit the Saalburg (www.saalburgmuseum.de) with the Roman Museum or set off for our hike. The Saalburg is a rebuilt Roman fort, where you can get an impression of the life, history and culture of a particular era. On the weekends there is an activity program, such as archery, old Roman games or baking bread. In the Saalburg you can still walk the 2km-long trail with information boards. Immediately after the start of our tour, you pass the Jupiter Column and walk along a forest path. Soon after you meet the marble stones and can take a rest at the magnificent panorama on the Main level. For now it's uphill to the Herzberg tower (591m). On the tower you have a magnificent view of Spessart, Odenwald and the skyline of Frankfurt. Through the forest we reach the Limes with the Kleinkastell Heidenstock. You follow the Limes on paths and natural forest trails back to the Saalburg. Tip: From the Saalburg it is only a 3km hike to Neu-Ansbach, where the Hessenpark (www.hessenpark.de) invites you to a visit.
