Ancient Civilian City

The Civilian City encompassed an estimated area of 67 ha and was surrounded by a city wall. Under Hadrian, the settlement received the city rights henceforth carrying the name Municipium Aelium Carnuntum. Owed to an economic boom, the city thrived in the decades to follow. The busy main road cutting through the town from East to West was part of the limes road. Both the forum and the forum’s thermal baths could be found here.
