Located in the village of Nennig in the delightful Upper Moselle Valley, the Roman Villa Nennig (German: Römische Villa Nennig) houses a richly illustrated gladiatorial mosaic, one of the most important Roman artefacts north of the Alps. Protected by a dedicated building built about 150 years ago and covering an area of roughly 160m² (524 ft²), the mosaic, dated to the 3rd century CE, vividly portrays musicians, hunting scenes and gladiatorial contests.
