Xanten, Germany

In the city of Xanten you can trace the history of the ancient Romans on the Lower Rhine. The former settlement achieved town status in around 100 AD. At the Xanten Archaeological Park the ancient Roman town of Colonia Ulpia Traiana has been largely reconstructed. Evidence of the formerly impressive architecture of the city can be seen in the harbour temple, the amphitheatre and the thermae.

Today Xanten is a prime example of successful conservation and urban refurbishment. Visit the town hall or look around the old town and view the Cathedral of St. Victor, the market square and various medieval buildings.
