On our way to Vianden we passed by here and had a look. Not very spectacular but nice to see. Foundations of a villa from Roman times with parts of a kitchen, bathroom and contours of a living room with a staircase to the cellar. Completely covered and accessible for free.

Doesn't really look like anything.. Theres this augmented reality app that should show the actual building that was suppose to be build but its not working properly. Not worth visiting

Unfortunately, the housing for these ruins has fallen into disrepair, leaving the site looking more like a hoodlum hangout rather than a 1st century villa. What could have been an interesting visit, was ruined when you see the amount of discarded trash about the area and the graffiti taggings along most of the walls. A disappointment for something that could have held more intrigue.

Missed opportunity to keep history alive because of poor maintenance...

Topography of Terror

The Topography of Terror (Topographie des Terrors) is an outdoor and indoor history museum. It is located on Niederkirchnerstrasse, formerly Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, on the site of buildings which during the Nazi regime from 1933 to 1945 were the headquarters of the Gestapo and the SS, the principal instruments of repression during the Nazi era.

The buildings that housed the Gestapo and SS headquarters were largely destroyed by Allied bombing during early 1945 and the ruins demolished after the war. The boundary between the American and Soviet zones of occupation in Berlin ran along the Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, so the street soon became a fortified boundary, and the Berlin Wall ran along the south side of the street, renamed Niederkirchnerstrasse, from 1961 to 1989. The wall here was never demolished.
