The Limes - protection and symbol of power

The decisive factor for the construction of the Limes was the defeat in the Battle of Varius. As a result, the Romans abandoned their plan to penetrate further into free Germania. They began with the construction of a border fortification, the Limes. The course began between Bonn and Koblenz, led over the Taunus, then along the Main to about 30 km east of Stuttgart and on to the Danube between Regensburg and Ingolstadt. Thus the Limes was the border between the Roman and the Germanic empire.
