School classes and adults can choose from a large range of programmes and courses in the APX. The classic courses devoted to Roman clothing and Roman games focus on the community spirit. Others are more creative in nature and allow the participants to make something with their own hands. The hands-on courses are limited to a maximum of 15 participants. Larger groups will be divided up.
The hands-on courses are led by specially trained supervisors. The courses last one hour and must be booked in advance. Prices apply in addition to the normal admission. A small surcharge will be charged if courses are booked for a weekend. The meeting point is at the box-office to the Park or the RömerMuseum. We will gladly help you to draw up a programme for your visit to the APX.
Please book the guided tours in advance through our Service Hotline. Do not hesitate to voice your special requests; our colleagues on the Service Hotline are fully familiar with all the possibilities available and have a direct link to the tour guides.
The courses are also available in English, Dutch, French and Hungarian. A sign language interpreter can be hired for visitors with impaired hearing.
