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.

Great place to spend a full day with them entire family - very interesting and very well maintained. Regardless whether the amphitheater, the different buildings or the museum itself - a lot of valuable information is being provided in three languages (German, Dutch and English)...More

One of the best àrchaeological museums I've ever visited. So much info, and so weĺl displayed. The Romans were so advanced 12 BC - 275 AD. Go inside the walls of the amphitheatre and read the displays!

Excellent place to visit. The place representing the history of Germans and Romans ruling them. Park with a combination of History (ancient temple, ancient Colosseum), Museum, Nature, and the Man-managed small paks and spots. Really worth to visit.

The museum of Roman artifacts is exceptional, good descriptions in English as well as German and with a good audio guide as well.

This site is worth a visit to better understand the true history of Germany. Bring a Picknick basket and enjoy the day at the site. It has plenty of history and for the kids, play parks and things to do.

We enjoyed our walk around the park but the museum staff watch you like hawks, popping up over your shoulder at every turn and overly rule laden.. don’t do this, don’t stand there, don’t touch that etc. Made us feel uncomfortable. Totally unnecessary for four...More

Since I was grown up close to Xanten, it never took me big efforts to get there. Overall the APX always is a "must have", if I have international guests. It is a big territory, which invites you for a long walk and chats with...More
