Art of Sound and Art of Fighting - Music And Gladiators

open for all

Finds of Roman organs are extremely rare. It is all the more astonishing that only recently metal finds from the fort Zugmantel in the Taunus were identified as parts of such an instrument. One can vividly imagine how the gladiators, accompanied by the sonorous sounds, moved into the small amphitheater near the castle to offer the spectators a violent spectacle. In the Roman tradition, musicians and gladiators in the Saalburg give their honor on this day. The faithful replica of a Roman organ will be seen and heard, and gladiators show their fighting skills. Small visitors have the opportunity to train themselves to junior gladiators.
