Back in January of 2012, I noticed the Römermauer for the first time. The Römermauer is a section of Roman wall from the original Castra Regina (“fortress by the river Regen”) which was built around 179 AD, during the reign of Marcus Aurelius. It’s right behind the McDonald’s on Maximilianstraße, whickh is kind of nifty.
Here’s what it looked like back in 2012:
Over the last few months, the fortress wall has been fenced off for some minor renovations, and now I know why. The city put a walkway up around the side and back, enhanced the walkways around the wall, and generally made it a bit more tourist-friendly.
