This site is worth a visit to better understand the true history of Germany. Bring a Picknick basket and enjoy the day at the site. It has plenty of history and for the kids, play parks and things to do.

We enjoyed our walk around the park but the museum staff watch you like hawks, popping up over your shoulder at every turn and overly rule laden.. don’t do this, don’t stand there, don’t touch that etc. Made us feel uncomfortable. Totally unnecessary for four...More

Since I was grown up close to Xanten, it never took me big efforts to get there. Overall the APX always is a "must have", if I have international guests. It is a big territory, which invites you for a long walk and chats with...More

We have visited a large number of Roman sites all over Europe and this has to rate up there with the best. The entry fee is reasonable (€9 per adult and under 18s free), particularly as you can fill a day here. The park retains...More

The weather was super-which helps- as there is a lot of walking. Very interesting history. Light lunch not so great and taste of coffee at Museum/ windmill cafe not good. Museum itself was great. Ruin of Harbour temple attractive. Wear comfortable shoes for walking!

The museum is fantastic with a very nice modern building and interesting artifacts including a boat and a large area of the bath ruins. The park itself is disappointing since the above ground items are all reconstructed but there are interesting items that have been...More
