The results of scientific research and excavations are on display in the Belginum Archaeological Park, the heart of which is the museum opened in 2002. It stands in the middle of the ancient street village and provides very vivid insights into life at that time on a main road in Celtic and Roman times. What food did the inhabitants eat? How did the water supply work? What were they working with back then? Questions like these are explained and illustrated using original finds.
By presenting individual grave finds, it is possible to give the people of that time a face. At the same time, it is possible to give the visitor an insight into the everyday work and methodology of an archaeologist: How does aerial archaeology work or why do archaeologists search for garbage? Changing special exhibitions on 100 m² complete the overall picture.
Not only the museum offers the possibility to discover Roman life. Outside, the geographical situation of a Roman village, the distance to the cemetery and the location of the temple district are illustrated. Along a 1000 m long hiking trail, vivid panels provide the visitor with the most important information about the various parts of the settlement and the cemetery. For example, a well about 18 metres deep was built up again, burial mounds and grave gardens were reconstructed and a children's playground was created.
The Belginum is the heart of a hiking trail of the same name. Starting point of the Belginum hiking trail in Bernkastel-Kues, "Kallenfelstal". From there it goes over the "Graacher Höhe" to "Kautenbach".
