One of the oldest Belgium towns


Arlon is a town of culture which is committed to preserving the Gallo-Roman heritage present in its territory. The town owns or manages several sites and museums directly linked to its ancient past, namely the Archaeological Museum of Arlon, the Jupiter Tower, the Neptune Tower, and the Roman baths. In order to honor this Gallo-Roman past, the town organizes a “Gallo-Roman Weekend” every first weekend of September during which numerous historical reconstruction activities are presented in the streets and squares of the town, in front of a large audience.

Over the past twenty years, the town’s urban development  and real estate projects have enabled the the Walloon region’s archaeological services  to carry out numerous excavation campaigns in the very heart of the current town. The results of these excavations have considerably increased our knowledge of ancient Arlon, and have enriched the collections of the Archaeological Museum of Arlon.
