Maybe this is of interrest for those of you who spend some days in Germany before the "Spiel".
There is a very interresting exhibition (actually it is a series of exhibitions) not that far from Essen.
The exhibition is called "Imperium, Conflict, Myth" and is about the Roman Empire, Germanic Tribes and the Varus Battle.
The locations are about 1 - 2.5 car- hours away from essen.
The exhibitions "Conflict" and "Myth" are open until the 25th of Octobre.
They take place at Kalkriese and Detmold.
Sadly the first ends at Octobre 11th in Haltern.
