Neuschwanstein
ARCHAEOLOGICAL PARK MAGDALENSBERG

An urban settlement from the late Celtic/early Roman time, formerly 2.5 sq km (1 sq mi) big, is the basis for one of the biggest archaeological excavation zones of Austria. An open-air museum with nearly 3 ha (7,4 acres) of surface, with more than 22 museums installed in old, preserved buildings invites to walk through the forum and through the streets of the Roman city. The substantial buildings of an emporer cult temple and of administration buldings are impressiv. They witness the Roman occupation which began around 15 B.C.
Trade buildings on the outskirts of the forum, workshops and resident buildings along the roads as well as the public baths suggest, that the city atop the Magdalensberg mountain was the trade center in the eastern alpine region already around the middle of the 1st century B.C. and in subsequent periods. Almoust all findings such as pottery, glass and bronze items, jewelry, iron tools, wall paintings, sculptures and tombstones are displayed as main themes in the above-mentioned museums. Just the precious frescoes from the time around 20 B.C. can be seen in the Regional Museum in Klagenfurt. On the Magdalensberg they are replaced by copies.
