Built to separate the outskirts of the Roman Empire from the ‘free’ Germanic tribes, the mighty Germany Limes represent the longest ancient defensive system Europe has ever seen. Stretching for 350 miles, from the Rhine to the Danube, the border bristled with forts and watchtowers, manned by legions and auxiliaries. The ultimate protector of the civilised Roman world from the hordes of Teutonic barbarian outside...
Tread the paths which once separated two vastly different cultures. Today, the route is characterised by rolling hills, forests and streams. Led by a Roman military expert this tour is a wonderful follow-up to our Walking Hadrian’s Wall tour and a unique expedition in the footsteps of the Romans.

NOTE: This is a tour for keen walkers and we will have to walk between 8-10 miles a day for the duration of the tour, a degree of fitness is required; waterproof clothing and suitable walking shoes/boots are essential.
