The Pompeiianum

The Pompeiianum
The Pompeiianum

This idealized replica of a Roman villa was built in 1840–1848 by Friedrich von Gärtner for King Ludwig I of Bavaria, who had been inspired by the excavations in Pompeii. The wall paintings and mosaic floors of the colourful rooms were based on Roman prototypes. Today they provide the perfect setting for an exhibition of original works of art from the State Antiquities Collections. The Pompeiianum is picturesquely located in a sloping vineyard overlooking the Main, surrounded by a Mediterranean garden with almond and fig trees and cedars.

Hours: March 30 -October 10: 9 am-6 pm. Closed Mondays. Closed 11 October-March.

Admission: Adults 5 €, Concessions 4 €.
