LVR-Archäologischer Park Xanten

Treasures and Museums

Welcome to antiquity! In the expansive greenery of the archaeological park, discover the remains of the Roman city of Colonia Ulpia Traiana, which was recognised as part of the “Frontiers of the Roman Empire – Lower Germanic Limes” UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2021. Imposing replicas, such as the amphitheatre and the harbour temple, provide visitors with a vivid impression of everyday life in Roman Germania. The award-winning LVR Roman Museum takes visitors on an exciting voyage of discovery, with countless original exhibits from the Roman city and the legion camps. Archaeological digs and events, Roman shipbuilding, a Roman restaurant and the extensive play areas offer many incentives for families to gain an understanding for Roman times with all their senses.
