Yesterday silber and I went sightseeing, our first stop was an old Roman fortress that is about 1,800+  years old that had since been reconstructed and turned into a museum.

Omg I have no nose!

The outside wall that was built to keep Germanic tribes out since obviously fighting them back didn't work out as well as planned.

The front gate

Icicles on the building

Standing in the courtyard was definitely a magical experience. With the dusty snow falling from overhead and no sounds going on the background you almost felt as if you had been transported back in time, and we half expected to see Roman soldiers in their winter wear walk past. The feeling in this place was just beyond powerful, mere pictures dont do it justice at all.

Me near one of the towers you can see from the front, only this time from the inside

Inside the buildings they had artifacts that they had found on the site, here is a genuine Roman helmet, which of course I had to get several ref photos of.

This is how the fortress was intended to look way back in the day, most roman buildings are this white and red color.

More photos later when I edit the ones of the castle we went to!
