  Kleve Gate
by MichaelFalk1969

Xanten - a former roman province town (Colonia Ulpia Trajanis) in the Lower Rhine area near the German-Dutch Border - has a nice historic Old Town. Some visible remnants of the city history are the Kleve Town Gate (Klever Tor), the Cathedral, the "Gotische Haus" and several other merchant houses in renaissance style, and a windmill (Kriemhildmühle). The Roman Archaeological Park is in walking distance from the city: The main attractions there are a partly rebuilt arena, a temple and a roman "taverna" with roman baths and a working restaurant, and parts of the fortifications.
