Trip Planner: Europe / Germany / North Rhine-Westphalia / Xanten / Museums / Archaeologiepark Xanten
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.

로마시대의 유적지가 집에서 가까운데 있음에도 불구하고 처음으로 인도서 손님이 오셔서 방문하였습니다^^ 굉장히 넓어 산책하기도 좋고 놀이터도 넓고 다행히 방문한 날 바람이 불어 추웠지만 햇빛비친 하늘이 맑은날이라 멋진사진을 찍을수있었어요. 날씨가 따뜻해지면 도시락싸서 또 방문하고싶어요~ more »Close to the Roman ruins at home despite having first visited India as a guest at the hotel was also very ^ ^ come and stroll through nice and lots of wind blow me fortunate enough to have visited the playground cold sunlight reflection of the sky on a clear day you can take great pictures this was in La.
