Collection of the Roman heritage displayed
Old Roman castellum
Museum Oud-Valkenburg is situated at the Castellumplein. This square is clearly situated on a mound; the old building ground of the Roman castellum Praetorium Agrippinae. The contours of the castellum are marked in the pavement with copper caps. The old Roman road to the castellum is partly reconstructed as a work of art at the Torenvlietslaan, about 800 meters south of the Castellumplein. The museum is established in a tower with a lift, on the exact location of former Roman castellum. From the tower you have a nice view of the former naval airfield and the old centre. The tower was destroyed during World War II and rebuilt in 1998.
