Pannonian Limes

The Pannonian Limes (Latin: Limes Pannonicus, German: Pannonischer Limes) is that part of the old Roman fortified frontier known as the Danubian Limes that runs for approximately 420 km (260 mi) from the Roman camp of Klosterneuburg in the Vienna Basin in Austria to the castrum in Singidunum (Belgrade) in present-day Serbia. The garrisons of these camps protected the Pannonian provinces against attacks from the north from the time of Augustus (31 BC–14 AD) to the beginning of the 5th century. In places this section of the Roman limes also crossed the river into the territory of the barbarians (Barbaricum).

The Heidentor, originally built in the Roman fort-city of Carnuntum in present-day Austria.
