I have been a military re-enactor for many years and have attended many events but I have never attended such a fabulous event as at Xanten. Roman re-enactors by the hundred, artisans and Gladiators and many things to watch. The cavalry and infantry displays were...More

Very interesting and not an expensive entry fee. The Romans were intuitive and ingenious and it shows throughout the exhibits. A great historical and archeological site. So much to see and do. Highly recommended for the whole family. Will definitely return again.
