Opening Weekend at Archäologischer Park Cambodunum

Kind of Event
Guided Tour

Roman life, guided tours, workshops

We celebrate the whole weekend together with all visitors! The occasion is the new and entertaining permanent exhibition  For God's Sake: The Temples of Cambodunum - rediscovered , which takes you into the exciting world of Roman beliefs. Around 2,000 years ago, the Romans settled in ancient Kempten. The beliefs of the Romans met the religious ideas of the local Celts. This fact raises questions: Which goddesses and gods were worshipped at that time and which ceremonies took place in the sacred places?
