N 52.1584539 / E 4.4859031

The Lower German Limes has been a World Heritage since 2021 and formed the border of the Roman Empire in the Netherlands and Germany two thousand years ago. The Romans were in our country for some 450 years and left behind all kinds of traces. Not only did they lay the foundations for our infrastructure and alphabet, but many archaeological treasures have also been found along the Limes, which can be admired in our museums. Here you will find everything from everyday objects such as Roman coins and tools to larger traces such as the remains of forts, watchtowers and even Roman ships.

The museum of Antiquities is the Dutch centre for archaeology. The more than 80,000 objects give a good impression of ancient civilisations: Egypt, the Near East, the Classical world but also the early Netherlands. In the museum, various attributes from the Roman period can be seen, such as decorated helmets and Germanic necklaces.
