The site is huge but well laid out. Where reconstructions have taken place, they are as the buildings would have been. Well worth a visit.

It was quite fresh weather when we decided to visit this Roman re-built village. There is an arena, some working tools and Roman machines such as cranes etc., some buildings and part of buildings, horse trolleys, houses, tempel, etc. Most of those copy buildings are not very well breathing the Roman atmosphere but in some cases there are the old foundations visible as well there is a beautiful and interesting museum with lots of Roman attributes, tools etc. Meanwhile there is a basement with the old Roman walls etc.
Outdoor there were some activities such as weavers and a Roman bakery where volunteers dressed in Roman closes prepared the flour and baked the breads such as the Romans did. You can tast/try the breads.
Worthwhile for an afternoon, good for children between 6-14 years old as well as for adult history lovers.

Xanten is not only a very intersting mediëval town. It once was an important Roman border city on he River Rhine, Many soldiers were situated at Vetera castle. Next to It was, from the year 100 on, the roman city Colonia Ulpia Trajana. It was a luxurious place with quite a few wealthy citizens. The emperor Marcus' Ulpius Trajanus also invested in It.
After the war they decided to reconstruct the site. This Is very expensive, so things go slowly. Yet, in combination with many exhibitionis on site, you get a very good impression of Roman live. The attraction is also very good for kids.
Entrance is € 9. Parking is free. You can have a great lunch at the Roman restaurant that is right in the heart of It.
If you like Roman history, way not combine your trip with Cologne and Nijmegen (Holland), both also very important Roman colonnes.

If you are interested in roman history, architecture, society and appreciate their intellect, this is the place to be. You get a first hand experience of their architecture. Museum is built on the foundations of Roman Bath. Right adjacent to the museum you can see the remaining bath. The rebuilding of Temple, wall, cranes, Roman Guest House gives you a great experience. You see the Amphitheater and can walk around in the park. We had our lunch in the restaurant setup in the park on saturday. Service was slow wiht only 3 waiters but food was delicious from the roman menu.

Loads to see and do. Interesting museum with interactive features. Buildings re-created to give a feel of original buildings.
