Schutzbauten Römische Ausgrabunden
Today's Welschdörfli district of Chur has a settlement continuity that stretches from the Neolithic period to the present day. Roman buildings are still recognizable today on the Ackermann site.

Description

Several prehistoric settlements and remains of a Roman road station have been discovered in Welschdörfli, the old town district south of the Plessur. You can visit the excavations and discoveries on the Ackermann grounds on Seilerbahnweg.

 

The protective structures covering the archaeological sites from the Roman era were built in 1986 according to designs by local architect Peter Zumthor. They do not only protect the finds, they are also a museum and architectural masterpiece. The weighty building with its delicate rilled outer surface is reminiscent of the original Roman edifices.

Prices

The key for the shelters is available for a fee of CHF 3.00 and a deposit of CHF 50.00 at the Regional Information Centre of Chur Tourism at the railway station. Key can be borrowed during the opening hours of the Information Centre and must be returned on the same day. Chur Tourism also offers interesting guided tours of the excavations
