European Culture Park in Bliesbruck-Reinheim



brief description: 

The archaeological park is a French-German cross-border project which combines excavations and reconstructions of Celtic and Roman finds with exhibition and educational facilities. On the German side, visitors will find the reconstructions of a few Celtic-style dwellings, a large Roman villa and a small museum which exhibits a selection of artefacts. On the French side, there is a reconstructed Gallo-Roman town. There is also a Frankish burial mound from the Merovingian period, accessible to the public. The archaeological park is embedded in the picturesque Blies Valley which provides a beautiful setting for walks.
