How was grain processed into bread 2000 years ago? You will experience this together step by step as you make a tasty loaf in the Roman way. Firstly you will grind the grain in a Roman stone mill before kneading and shaping the dough according to your own ideas. Then the loaves will be placed into the reconstructed wood stove and finally you can take a warm and fragrant loaf home with you.

Off to visit the Roman period! The largest archaeological park in Switzerland offers more than thirty surprising, unique and exciting sights including the most impressive Roman theatre north of the Alps, the atmospheric Roman house and on display in the museum the largest collection of late antique silver.
Events in the Roman theatre
An ambience reminiscent of 1800 years ago: the tiers of the impressive theatre in Augusta Raurica at the time would have been packed with up to 10,000 spectators. Today, there is seating for only 2,000 visitors. The atmosphere, however, is still beyond compare.
The largest Roman festival in Switzerland takes place in Augusta Raurica annually on the last weekend in August. The colourful festival is well known far and wide and attracts thousands of visitors delighted to be transported back to the Roman period. One of the secrets of its success is its unique atmosphere. Surrounded by authentic monuments and entertaining spectacles, visitors learn about modern scientific research presented in an easily comprehensible manner.
The next Roman festival will take place on 28 & 29 August 2021.
