Outstanding exhibits two mosaic floors from the immediately adjacent to the Romans Roman Peristylvilla hall of the 3rd Century AD Once a magnificent mansion with over 5,000 square meters of covered space and more than fifty rooms on the ground floor alone, are now only remnants of the foundation walls. Stucco remains, marble reliefs and wall paintings give an impression of the former glorious interiors.

The gladiator mosaic image of the program, the floor heating is obtained shows a dramatic increase in scenes of animal and gladiator fights.

The Oceanusmosaik was found in the central hall of the villa representation. Dominant image is depicted in the apse of the eponymous god of the sea, whose dominion is symbolized by a variety of sea creatures lovingly illustrated and a Mediterranean coastal landscape with architecture and scenic depictions of ships and merchants.

The grave stones of Bingerbrück show bas-relief depictions of Roman soldiers. Clothing and weaponry, and the inscriptions give important clues to the Roman military history. The tombstone of Tiberius Iulius Abdes Pantera is also on view here.

I have at the tunic guide of Ms. Silona took part. A wonderful, lively and interesting guided tour through the active time of the villa. The museum is clearly structured and the staff are very friendly. It is easy to get to and has a few free parking spaces directly on the premises.

A small but fine Roman museum with two grandiose mosaics. The mosaics come from the Roman villa, the remains can still be seen here. The villa must have been huge. Unfortunately, the outside area is overgrown. Here you should really mow the lawn and at least free the remains of the wall from weeds. It's a shame that so little is taken care of in the museum.

Sehr schön gemacht! Die römischen Mosaikböden sind ein echtes Highlight! Man bekommt viele Fundstücke zu sehen und kann einen Einblick in das Leben der Römer gewinnen.

Small museum with Roman excavations and the foundations of a Roman villa. You can even marvel at Roman underfloor heating here.

Wieskirche

The Pilgrimage Church of Wies (Wieskirche) is an oval rococo church, designed in the late 1740s by Dominikus Zimmermann. It is located in the foothills of the Alps in the municipality of Steingaden.

The sanctuary of Wies is a pilgrimage church extraordinarily well-preserved in the beautiful setting of an Alpine valley, and is a perfect masterpiece of Rococo art and creative genius, as well as an exceptional testimony to a civilization that has disappeared.

The hamlet of Wies, in 1738, is said to have been the setting of a miracle in which tears were seen on a simple wooden figure of Christ mounted on a column that was no longer venerated by the Premonstratensian monks of the Abbey. A wooden chapel constructed in the fields housed the miraculous statue for some time. However, pilgrims from Germany, Austria, Bohemia, and even Italy became so numerous that the Abbot of the Premonstratensians of Steingaden decided to construct a splendid sanctuary.
