Ruffenhofen Roman Park has deliberately chosen to do without elaborate reconstructions of the archaeological features at the site. Instead, plants play the roll of buildings, creating a visual impression of the antique constructions. A hornbeam hedge represents the fort wall, and white-blossoming plants shape the fort ditches.
This concept has had many positive side effects for the nature of the area. Small game can find shelter in the tall grass of the troop barracks. Perches for buzzards marking the fort towers attract birds of prey. And many storks from the vicinity can also be found regularly in the Roman Park.

The new viewing point on a hill near the LIMESEUM provides an excellent overview of the entire site.
