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.

While all this environment reconstruction (experimental archaeology), but nothing so far has given me an idea of how she could look like a Roman colony. To this great arranged Museum. Not we were able to see the parts of the Museum for boat-building, because there we noticed that the opening hours are shorter. The Archaeological Park is a great place for children. In the middle of the area is huge and probably attractive (not checked) a children's playground.

In het museum waren de romeinse spullen heel mooi tentoon gesteld. Buiten waren de afstanden erg groot, voor mensen die slecht te been zijn. Deze zou je met een fiets naar binnen moeten laten komen. more »In the museum were the Roman stuff very nice. Outside were the very large distances, for people who are bad to bone. This you would have to let come inside with a bicycle.
