Aguntum Museum


Excavations are still under way at the Aguntum archaeological site in nearby Dölsach to piece together the jigsaw puzzle of this 2000-year-old “Municipium”, which flourished as a center of trade and commerce under Emperor Claudius who granted Aguntum the status of town. Aguntum was a mining and trading centre which exploited local sources of iron, copper, zinc and gold. Craftsmen in the town processed the metals to produce a range of goods which were then transported along the Roman roads. Other exports included wood, milk products and mountain crystals from the Tauern Mountain Range. Take a stroll around the excavations, and then visit the glass-walled museum to explore the Roman roots in the Alps. On display are objects discovered during the excavations, including clothes, reliefs, pottery, bronze objects, jewelry and coins. The observation tower offers a spectacular view of the archaeological site, from the extensive artisans' quarter and the elegant Atrium House over the bath house to the city gates with the walls, which were 2.45 meters (8') thick.
