Dogs are welcome at the APX, but must remain leashed within the Park. They may run free on the grassland directly behind the parking lot. Paper bags for cleaning up after your pet are available at the box office. Dogs are not permitted in the LVR-RömerMuseum.
There are several toilet facilities at the Park. Their location is indicated on the map you receive at the box office. Baby changing facilities are available in the Spielehaus and in the LVR-RömerMuseum.
Most parts of the Park and its buildings are accessible to mobility impaired visitors. Some parts of the city wall are not suitable for wheelchair users due to their historical architecture. The amphitheatre can be accessed via a ramp. The LVR-RömerMuseum of course is completely barrier-free.
Of course, you may take photos or videos for your own private use. If they are to be published or are for commercial use, however, you will need written permission.
The Roman Hostel is located close to the entrance. The restaurant in the Hostel offers a wide range of refreshments from coffee and cakes to a Roman feast. Large groups should book seats in advance.
Picnics are permitted on the meadows of the APX. Please bring your own food, drink and equipment and clean up your picnic area. Barbecues and open fires are not permitted on the meadows. A spacious barbecue pavilion can be booked in advance.
Food and drink are not permitted in the LVR-RömerMuseum and exhibition rooms.
The restaurant in the inn provides the perfect setting for parties, with its authentic Roman atmosphere. Visitors can also use the barbecue hut in the park if they make a reservation. Contact us in good time.
There is a wide range of souvenirs, books and high-quality replicas of original finds in the games house and in the LVR-RömerMuseum. Visitors wishing to make a “Roman” souvenir with their own hands should come to a Roman Weekend, where they will find artisans at work outside the inn.
The large meadows are suitable for all kinds of ball games. Please bring your own sports equipment and be considerate of other visitors. Ball games are not permitted in the vicinity of the reconstructions and on the paths.
In consideration of other visitors, cycling and inline skating are not permitted at the APX. Bicycle stands are available at the entrance of the APX.
As an open-air museum, large parts of the APX are exposed to the weather. It is therefore recommended to wear appropriate clothes.
Outdoors, smoking is permitted. In the LVR-RömerMuseum, the buildings and historical reconstructions, smoking is prohibited.
During the opening hours of the APX and the LVR-RömerMuseum, parking is free of charge.
Unfortunately, today's safety and health regulations prohibit bathing in the baths of the APX.
All text signs in the park and the museum have recently been completed with texts in English and Dutch. The APX also offers guided tours and hands-on courses in English, Dutch, French and Hungarian. Hearing impaired visitors can ask to be accompanied by a sign language interpreter. Please inform us about any special requests prior to your visit.
The Roman reconstructions provide shelter from the rain. Other interesting retreats – not only on a rainy day - are the house of Roman Games, the restaurant, the Hostel, the pavilion and last but not least the LVR-RömerMuseum.
