  Roman Temple
by MichaelFalk1969

Xanten (Rhineland) has been a roman border town in antiquity, and some buildings of the settlement have been (partly) reconstructed in an archaeological park, featuring villas, temples, and even a small roman arena, giving you a vivid impression on what life was like at the frontier of the Roman Empire and "Germania".
Be aware that most buildings are only partly rebuilt to give an impression what they looked like; sometimes you just see foundations.

Xanten itself has some nice Old Town - buildings and is worth a detour.
