Experience history at Forum Hadriani

On the site of what is now Voorburg, there was once a Gallo-Roman city, the northernmost city on the European mainland: Forum Hadriani. Around 2,000 years ago, this may have been the region’s most important city. And if you look carefully, you can still see the former Roman city reflected in Voorburg’s current street pattern!

Over the years, excavations have revealed various artefacts from Forum Hadriani, including the hand of a statue, a small altar and the remains of the former harbour. In Museum Swaensteyn, you can find a model of the city!

Did you know that..

Forum Hadriani is regarded as the Dutch Pompeii.
