Archaeologiepark Xanten, Xanten

(300+ reviews on the web)
History Museum
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.

  • There is a lot to see, the park is large and there is information everywhere translated also in english. There is also a museum with great collection of artefacts and excavations.  more »
  • The Park is really awesome and great prepares the theme of Romans on the Rhine. We were not here for 12 years, now there is a very interesting Roman Museum. We come in the short term, because the time was not enough.
