Just west of the Ruhrgebiet, Xanten is a good place to be. The market place offer a nice view and, in the better seasons, good terraces for a drink or a dish.

The Marktplatz is a good place to come to for shopping ( three days a week ), to meet friends, to eat an ice cream or drink a coffee in the Italian places.
What I dislike are the modern buidings. Nevertheless my favourite house is the Gotisches Haus.

We liked the Markplaz, which is the centre of the town's activities. We were there on a Thursday and there was a small market which sold excellent produce at reasonable prices. Good cafes and restaurants overlooking the square and also the cathedral is not too far. It appeared that there is 3 hours free parking nearby. We got a 10 euro ticket but were there for 5 hours. Xanten is good for a day out but I felt that was enough.

Ahhh, yes, I love German markets. Usually, you can get a lot of snacks there to help you enjoy your evening drinking beer with your friends. This one was no exception - we bought a lot of snacks (mainly from one lady from Greece) and enjoyed every bit of it. Also bough some other stuff. Worth visiting for sure.
