Two Mithras sanctuaries, which were located on the edge of the settlement, were excavated in Güglingen.

The second Mithraeum was discovered at Güglingen during the 1999-2005 excavations and excavated between 2002-4.1 The Mithraeum was slightly smaller than Mithraeum I.

There were three phases, all timber-built. The last of these is the one in the reconstructions on-site. It was destroyed by fire when the inhabitants left.
