The Romanesque structures and other artifacts may be reproductions, but Xanten does indeed date back to the Roman era.

Artifacts on display at Xanten are recreations. Archaeological digs in several areas around the town are off limits to visitors, but the exposed ancient building foundations are easily seen behind their fences. The town also has a Roman-style amphitheater offering musical performances summer. There is also a lot of interesting architecture from Germany’s medieval period.

The museum in the middle of town, close to the nearly 800-year-old cathedral, displays the archaelogical findings. Some of the artifacts on display in Xanten are reproductions, and a much largerArcheological dig at Xanten collection with authentic relics can be seen at the Romano-Germanic Museum in Cologne

Of special interest to those with children is a wooden play structure surrounded by lots of open grass field so they can burn off the energy stored up by too much traveling around with you.

A wooden play structure with lots of open grass area is a welcome sight for travelers with children.
