Today I like to show you an old city at the river Rhine where we hang out this weekend.


Xanten

A cool mix of history and relaxation in one place.
As we travel this place some more often, we decided to have this time a bit more relaxing and not so many old stones.

Location

The city on the map of Germany.

The city history

Xanten is known for the huge and well prepared Archaeological Park. This is one of the largest archaeological open air museums in the world, built at the site of the Roman settlements Colonia Ulpia Traiana.

Other attractions include the medieval town centre with Xanten Cathedral, many museums and large man-made lakes for various watersport activities.

Even at the lake you see some leftovers from the romans.

We travel with a bigger group and what is better as celebrating a huge BBQ.
