Abusina or Abusena was a Roman castra (military outpost), and later of town, of the Roman Province of Raetia.

It was at Eining near Abensberg, on the Upper German- Raetian Limes , which at this point was the Danube River. Abusina stood near to the eastern termination of the high road which ran from the Roman military station Vindonissa on the Aar to the Danube.

In the 2nd century the fort was occupied by the Cohors IV Tungrorum with about 1,000 men. By the later Roman Empire, archaeology and the Notitia Dignitatum suggest the site was occupied by Cohors III Brittonum with only 50 men.

Nice place to visit if interested in Roman history. Not too much to see but lots to read. If you're passing through, it's worth a stop.

The view is nice and you learn a lot of things (in Deutch). You can walk there for the whole place and it has a parking lot. It's not for people who wants to make grill or to have fun. It's a historical landscape

If you have some interested in Roman history, it is amazing to contemplate one of its forts. Time has destroyed almost everything, but from the top built there you can have an idea of the size and steucte built in the old times.

Amazing and Real peace of history … "History to touch for young and old" is usually in August and the motto in the former border fort Abusina in Bad Goegging. At Bavaria's largest Roman festival, visitors can experience the everyday life of Rome as they did 2000 years ago.

Kakesbeck Castle

Kakesbeck is one of the largest medieval fortifications in Münsterland and the oldest castle in Lüdinghausen. The imposingly grown complex originated in 1120 as a motte, a small hilltop tower castle. After numerous changes of ownership, the castle was extended onto two islands, but it was not until the 14th century that it underwent significant alterations and extensions under the von Oer family. The estate experienced its heyday in the middle of the 18th century, when it covered an area of almost one square kilometre and consisted of five further outer castles in addition to the core castle, which were secured by ramparts and moats.

The well-maintained condition of the castle today is thanks to the late Wilfried Grewing, the former lord of the castle. The foundation named after him has been particularly committed to preserving the property since 2020.
