Once a year the ruins of Augusta Raurica are turned back into a lively roman city. The 30000 visitors travel back in time into the ancient world. Musicians play on the streets, while craftsmen exchange their handmade goods. Gladiators prove their strength while fighting in the amphitheater. At the different workshops young and old can relive the roman times with their own hands. The trip back in time is completed by the authentic roman dishes at the restaurants and imbiss stands.
