The small fort Altes Jagdhaus was a Roman military camp on the western Taunus route (route 3) of the Upper Germanic Limes, which was awarded the status of a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2005. The ground monument, which is still very well visible in the terrain above ground, is located southeast of Arnoldshain-Hegewiese, a district of the municipality of Schmitten im Taunus in the Hessian Hochtaunuskreis. The current name derives from a hunting lodge built inside the castle in the 16th century.
