The Romans

The Romans

The Roman period accompanies the entire length of the holiday route. The world empire of the Roman emperors is palpably present everywhere. They called themselves imperatores (rulers), caesares (successors of Caesar) or augusti (noble ones). The Danubius formed the natural boundary, the limes, of the Roman Empire to the north. Beyond it, in the Barbaricum, lived the free Germanic tribes. In contrast to the “walled limes”, which met the Danube near Eining and just before Kelheim, the Danubius was known as the “wet limes”.
