Welcome to Xanten


Xanten’s medieval heyday is best symbolised by the majestic Dom that dominates the tangled old centre with its stately gates, cheerful mills and historical fountains. The town is also the mythological birthplace of Siegfried, the dragon-slaying hero of the 12th-century Nibelungen epic, which became the subject of Richard Wagner’s Ring of the Nibelungen opera cycle 700 years later.
