No matter whether you are on your own or in a “pack”, a nature lover or a bookworm, sporty or a connoisseur, young or old – everyone has a good time here. So make sure to plan a little bit more time for your visit to MONREPOS.
Between the UNESCO World Heritage region „Oberes Mittelrheintal“ and the Roman frontier „Obergermanisch-Rätischer Limes“ are a number of further possibilities for excursions which can easily be combined with your day spent at MONREPOS.
We are happy to help you in planning your own personal excursion.
and at MONREPOS we allow them to behave like children. Where can they do this better than in the “adventure playground” archaeology, located in the car-free MONREPOS woods? Child-friendly events for families tell the story of how we became human using fun, action, creativity and a great deal of attention to detail. We are happy to plan childrens’ birthday parties or family celebrations with you. Just so that everything suits you perfectly.
Enjoy something tasty in the Bistro Heimathirsch in our Foyer. Or on our panorama terrace overlooking the Central Rhine Valley. We can also cater for groups and parties in a suitable setting by appointment.
MONREPOS doesn’t only provide a unique museum experience. It also offers an inimitable event location. In an exclusive setting with exceptional ambience, at Monrepos your original and made-to-measure event concept meets that certain something.
After all, the archaeologists were able to investigate the great grandmother of events – the Gönnersdorf site – right outside their front door. We have known how to party for 40,000 years. Archaeology shows us this. The event specialists at MONREPOS can help you plan what you would do differently in the here and now.
Established in 2015, the „Fürstenweg“ (Princes' Route) is a branch of the Rheinsteig route which starts and finishes at the Schloss Monrepos car park. Moreover, other rambler routes, for example the Rheinhöhenweg also pass by Monrepos. Limeswanderweg, Westerwaldsteig and Wiedweg are all immediately accessible. We are happy to help plan your walking or cycling route around Monrepos, whether crossing paths suitable for childrens’ prams or buggies or a tour over several days. You will find suggestions for itineraries in the Museum.
MONREPOS is a partner of the Rheinsteig and has committed itself to catering for the particular wishes and requirements of ramblers.
Castles and fortresses are the starting points for the Romantic Rhineland. Steeped in legend, the romantic landscape of the Rhine Valley, with its rocky crags, forested heights and sheer vineyards continues to enchant visitors to the present day.
Our tip: The historic buildings at MONREPOS (hunting lodge, royal stables, Hahnhof farm and royal cemetery) are connected by an attractive circular route. The 1,5 km long path is suitable for childrens’ prams or buggies and offers an intimate view across the Rhine Valley, far removed from traffic and the tourist track.
The historic buildings are still lived in today and cannot be viewed from inside. Please respect the privacy of their occupants and do not trespass on the properties.
This is shown by the younger archaeological sites in the environs of Monrepos. In the Roman period, in particular, the Central Rhineland and the surrounding uplands occupied an important economical and strategical position. Evidence for this are the ruins of a Roman fort in Niederbieber and of course the Roman frontier, the limes.
Our tip: We recommend a visit to the Volcano Park on the other side of the Rhine.
Nutrition is one of the main themes of our research. Let us surprise you with the taste of the authentic Palaeolithic diet and immerse yourself in our “aromatic archaeology”. Just between us: in our Bistro “Heimathirsch” everyone will find something to like – since we also know the favourite tastes of people today.
Taste yourself back in time. The focus of our Museum cuisine is highly regional and seasonal. Alongside game dishes inspired by the Palaeolithic we also offer a refined selection of contemporary dishes created from the best ingredients. Weather permitting, our terrace offers panoramic views over the Rhine Valley.
We are happy to cater for larger groups
from your family celebration to your company event.

Here in at MONREPOS we offer an assortment of gifts inspired by the Ice Age, from the cuddly toy mammoth to a range of accessories for home and wardrobe inspired by hunting-related themes. And we sate your hunger for more knowledge on our subject with a range of books extending from light reading through popular science to the scientific works published by our own institute.
We even offer well known finds from the Old Stone Age – sorry, of course not the original specimens! However, you will find a limited edition of hand-crafted reproductions of the “Venus of Willendorf” or of our very own “Venuses” from Neuwied-Gönnersdorf, female images which were treasured by Ice Age people.
Young researchers thirsty for knowledge can dig around in the old explorer’s chest. Here they can find real prehistoric shark teeth, mammoth ivory, picture books and science books, play figures of extinct animals and much more…
There is a good chance that a turn around the parquet floor of our Shop with Outlook will provide a final pirouette for your stimulating Museum visit.
