3.9/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web
Walk through the ancient Roman city of Colonia Ulpia Traiana at Archaeologiepark Xanten, Germany's biggest archaeological open-air museum. The town was established as a Roman military camp in 12 BCE, but, unfortunately, nothing remains from those times. Luckily, excavators and archaeologists have redesigned the major buildings in the park to the scale and architectural precision of the Roman originals. See the harbor temple, the amphitheater, the city walls and gates, and Roman houses as they would have appeared in their original places. A ticket to the park also gets you into the Roman Museum, which gives a history of the Roman life in the Lower Rhine area and contains the remains of the Town Baths. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Archaeologiepark Xanten and many more Xanten attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Xanten itinerary builder.

  • As a child with the school once been there, and now with my girlfriend & your parents. It should be some regional to the "loading variants" & our plan worked. All have learned something & had fun during the tour. The rain break was bridged at the local museum. So all good (thumbs up)

  • Archaeologiepark Xanten Meanwhile visited 2 times at an interval of 7 years. Slowly it is further developed. Walking between the reconstructions of Roman buildings. Further fine restaurant in the park and the large indoor museum is a lot to see. From the Archaeologiepark are you in a few minutes walk into the Centre of Xanten what a beautiful place is with cosy terraces.

  • Property worth exploring, it seems to me that you can start from the premises of the Museum and then explore the whole city.
