Route: Pratteln – Augusta Raurica – Golf Rheinfelden

A Roman settlement was discovered in the present-day area of Augst (275 m above sea level).
When this Roman colony was founded (44 BC), it belonged to the Gallia Belgica province, and later to the Germania Superior province.

So far, excavations have revealed a theater, a temple, the main forum with the temple of Jupiter, an amphitheater, an aqueduct, and several private-owned commercial buildings. The most important archeological finds are exhibited in the Roman museum.
