Legionary Trail

Along the Legionary Trail visitors can explore the fascinating history of Switzerland's only Roman legionary camp.

Roman history brought to life in Windisch

6000 legionaries once prepared for battle at Vindonissa. They answered to the Roman Emperor in person. Today visitors can see, hear and feel their way into the life of the legionaries and high officers of the time by pursuing the 2,000-year-old traces they left behind. Atmospherically presented excavation sites provide the perfect setting: for example the “sunken” Roman officers' canteen featuring the images and dialogues of an opulent feast, the ruins of the Roman thermal baths brought to life with lights and fragrances and the only fully functional Roman water system north of the Alps. Look forward to events and programmes for families, adults, groups and school classes. The Legionary Trail is a Museum Aargau institution.
