...that you should have seen in Carnuntum

The Roman city of Carnuntum just outside Vienna offers visitors a unique experience worldwide with its Roman houses reconstructed on the original site. But there are also plenty of discoveries to be made beyond that, as the fabulous worlds of the Carnuntum-Marchfeld Roman Country region offer a variety of culture, culinary delights and nature.

Here are 5 highlights that will perfectly round off your day trip. Your day ticket includes access to all locations.

1. Roman Quarter

In Carnuntum, the Roman era is not a distant past, but a present that can be experienced with all senses. For this purpose, a part of a Roman city quarter has been reconstructed on the original site, the only one of its kind in the world.
