Xanten is a small town near the border of the netherlands. The landscape is mostly flat, typical for the area. The town itself doesnt offer so much to do. But it has got a big open air museum, showing parts of the roman Xanten, called colonia ulpia Traiana. In the museum parts of the buildings are preserved and good described for the visitors. In the ancient amphitheater even today plays take place. Exceptional is also the reconstruction of the roman baths.
If you arent interested in history, you can enjoy the quiet nature. If you are close by Xanten, take a short look at the city and of course the open air museum.
