Seminar on “LIMES mobile as chance for cultural tourism in Austria and Europe”

On 21st June an expert seminar on ”LIMES mobile as chance for cultural tourism in Austria and Europe” took place in the Multiversum in Schwechat.

Experts from different fields related to the Roman Frontier

In the seminar different stakeholders and experts related to the Roman Frontier were invited. The LIMES consortium used this opportunity to present the project and the LIMES-App. The feedback was positive and the participants wanted to learn more about the app.

Dr. Sonja Jilek gave a good overview of other European projects related to the Roman Empire like Danube Limes Brand and Limes Tourism Connection. Ms Eva Kuttner presented the young initiative Museums at the Danube Limes, which can be also considered as an important network for the implementation of LIMES mobile on a long perspective.

Two good examples about the Roman Frontier in Germany were given by Wolfgang Crecelius (Limes fort Pohl) and Friedhelm Walbert (Römerwelt Rheinbrohl).

The seminar was an effective method to enlarge the Limes network and bringing together German and Austrian stakeholders to discuss and to create new contacts.

Visit in Archeological Park Carnuntum

After the seminar the LIMES consortium had the possibility to visit Carnuntum and to speak to the director Dr. Markus Wachter about the history of Carnuntum. A guiding tour was offered and gave the consortium the chance to learn more about it. Especially for our German participants from Limes castel Pohl, Wolfgang Crecelius, and Römerwelt Rheinbrohl, Friedhelm Walbert, and the consortium members from Bulgaria and Germany it was interesting to see examples from the Roman Frontier in Lower Austria.

Here some impressions of the seminar and the visit.

Ruse’s candidacy in the competition for “European Capital of Culture”


The “European Capital of Culture” Initiative is a unique event on a European scale: for a period of one year the city or region holding the prestigious title turns into a center of the cultural life in Europe – vital and pulsating, diverse and dynamic. Apart from economic revival, the initiative aims at helping the cities and their citizens rediscover their distinctive features and transform them into culture. In 2019 all eyes will be on Bulgaria and Italy and the cities that will represent them are yet to be designated.


Ruse’s unique cultural atmosphere has been shaped by various European influences. As the biggest city on the Danube River, Ruse welcomes modernity, innovations and the aristocratic spirit of the romantic era of prosperity. “All I have experienced later, had already happened once in Roustschuk” – this is how the Ruse-born Nobel prize winner Elias Canetti describes the cosmopolitan spirit and diversity of the city, with their influence apparent in its exquisitely ornamented architecture and crossroad identity. Located on a border, the city overcomes the borderline and plans its future in the wider context of the cross-border partnership with Giurgiu and Bucharest. Ruse welcomes its guests as Bulgaria’s “Danube capital” and as a Free Spirit City!
