Continuing towards the Moselle along Kaiserstrasse, the visitor passes the site of the Roman Forum (no longer visible today) near which the Forum Baths were found in 1987. Excavations for an underground parking garage brought to light the remains of a bath from around A.D. 100 underneath air-raid shelters from the Second World War, the remains of a seventeenth century Capucinian monastery, former vineyards, and two old cemeteries. The two hot-water baths, a surprisingly well preserved cold-water bath, hollow-floor heating systems, sewer canals, and massive walls on deep foundations are accessible as a combination of excavations and museum.
