The Battle of Varus in the year 9 AD, which took place in Kalkriese near Osnabrück, was the scene of the slaughter of 10,000 Roman soldiers at the hands of Germanic tribes.

The park includes the remains of the defensive ramparts built by the Germanic tribesmen, which helped them overcome the highly-trained and disciplined Roman legions, as well as a Roman pathway and a botanicum. The Kalkriese Museum and Park were awarded the European Culture Prize in 2005 for their innovative depictions of the Battle of Varus.
