Roman-Germanic Museum, Cologne

4.0 stars


The Roman-Germanic Museum

The Roman-Germanic Museum, located right next to the famous Cologne Cathedral, is one of the top museums of the region. It was built around a mosaic of Dionysius which was discovered during the construction of an air raid shelter in 1941. The museum itself was built in the 1970’s and has a very large selection of Roman finds from the area, as Cologne was originally a Roman settlement as far back as 50AD (a tribal village before that). Along the side of the museum you can see an original Roman road that doesn’t look like much today and you’d probably overlook it unless you are actually actively looking for it. It’s right next to the cathedral, so just pop on in for a brief look, especially if you’re interested in Roman settlements in Germany. [more ]

Römisch-Germanisches Museum

The Roman-Germanic museum houses an impressive collection of Roman artifacts, including the famous Dionysus mosaic and the reconstructed tomb of the legionnaire Poblicus, as modern day Cologne was actually built on top of a major Roman settlement. I was impressed by the openness of the museum and whilst it was amazing to see all the stone artifacts, it was a real bonus to be able to touch some of them. The museum also boasts the most perfectly preserved collection of Roman glass that I have ever seen and I was certainly surprised by its beautiful presentation and the flawless specimens. It is definitely a museum worth visiting. [more ]
