Xanten: Archaeological Park

Before the Franks in 275 destroyed the Roman Colonia Ulpia Trajana, situated on a branch of the Rhine, it was one of the main Teutonic cities. On a quarter of the surface of the ancient stronghold there is today the Archaeological park of Xanten with original and reconstructed Roman monuments. Above all the harbour temple, the amphitheatre and the thermae give evidence of the formerly impressive architecture of the city.
