Gladiator School

Active Adventure – The Myth of the Gladiator: Fights and Training up Close
A fight to the death, wild animals, blood-thirsty crowds, fame and fortune. What is true and not true about the myth of the gladiator? You can see for yourself the truth about gladiators at the original site where over 1,800 years ago blood was still spilled. Jan Krüger, one of the few “genuine” gladiators in Germany, will give you a decidedly impressive insight into the equipment, fighting, and training of the legendary fighters. By taking a crack at it yourself, you can relive history up close and learn what it meant to be a gladiator.

Tip: Adventure performance by the Gladiator Valerius - a thrilling journey back in time with a professional actor.
