Archeological Park and Museum Aguntum

The Roman settlement “Municipium Claudium Aguntum” is located in the municipality Dölsach, not far from Lienz

The Roman settlement Aguntum is located about 5 km from Lienz in East Tyrol and provides an insight into the former Roman city, which belonged to the province of Noricum and flourished in the 1st and 2nd century AD. The town was destroyed in 612 AD by the Bavarians and Slavs. Several years ago elements were laid open and examined from an archaeological point of view. In the course of time the area of the former Roman settlement has become an open air museum and archaeological park. One of the elements that can be visited today is the atrium building - never before has such a structure been found in the Alps!

The thermal bath, however, indicates that the population must have been quite wealthy. What you can also see if you visit the Roman settlement is the impressive city wall and numerous city gates. Moreover the handicraft centre has been laid open. However, on the 18 metres high viewing tower you can enjoy a fabulous view on Aguntum. A 20.00 Euros silver coin, which is part of the coin series called "Rom an der Donau" (Rome along the Danube river), as well as a special issue stamp with envelope and special postmark have been dedicated to Aguntum and are available.

There is also a museum, called "AGUNTUM Stadt", near the archaeological park. It is managed by the Curatorium pro Agunto association and provides an insight into everyday life in the city. The highlight of the exhibition is the big marble basin from the atrium building in the archaeological park, furthermore findings from Aguntum such as Roman reliefs, ceramics, amphorae, jewellery, brooches, lamps, coins and clothes are exhibited. A real journey through time!
