Map showing the sights along the German Limes Road (German: Deutsche Limes-Straße) in Bavaria in Germany.

The Upper German-Raetian Limes forms the frontier of the Roman Empire between the rivers Rhine and Danube, and stretches 550 kilometres (342 miles). The frontier was in use from the beginning of 1st century CE to the second half of the 3rd century CE. The Upper German-Raetian Limes is part of the transnational UNESCO World Heritage Site "Frontiers of the Roman Empire" together with Hadrian's Wall and the Antonine Wall.
