The APX is a popular location for school outings. Lively guided tours and activities round off an exciting and informative visit to the Roman city.

Attention is assured: there are many ways to convey knowledge in the Park.

The reconstructions illustrate ancient Roman life more impressively than any book. Life-size models of the gates and temples, amphitheatre, workshops and the bathhouse invite visitors to step inside and look around. Yet these buildings do not simply stand alone, for Xanten's special attraction lies in the variety of possibilities: from excavation and presentation in museums to scientific examination and virtual reconstruction, all aspects of modern archaeology are to be found in the Park.

Numerous guided tours and hands-on courses offer an opportunity to delve deeper into the Roman world. These tours and courses are specially tailored to the needs of school classes. Kids and students have ample opportunity to try things out for themselves or simply to touch and get the feel of various objects during the guided tours. All age groups can join in or simply watch the activity programmes.

Class outing: history comes alive in the APX and provides lots of fun, too.

Original finds are the lifeblood of archaeology. The brand-new LVR-RömerMuseum offers many special attractions for school classes in English. In the completely redesigned exhibition, children and youths find over 30 exhibits designed for hands-on, multisensory experiences. Special programmes are available, also for schools for children with learning disabilities and for groups of disabled schoolchildren. Enquiries should be addressed to the Museum Education department.
