Aftermath of a historical battle that may have taken place near the museum.

The Battle of Solicinium was a military conflict between the Romans and the Alamanni in 367 A.D. The exact location of the site of Solicinium is disputed, but some historians suspect that it may have been near the Hechingen - Stein open-air museum.

The Romans were led by Emperor Valentinian I, who wanted to push back the Alamanni, who kept threatening the borders of the empire. The battle ended with a victory for the Romans, who severely decimated the Alamanni and captured their king Vadomar. The Battle of Solicinium is considered one of the last great Roman victories in Germania and an important success for Valentinian I, who consolidated his authority as emperor.
