Simply nice. In my childhood, I used to see such things in pictures only. It was amazing to see it while visiting the archeological park Xanten.

This is a nice and large windmill. It is located in the old and beautiful town of Xanten and also close the archeological park. I liked the town better than the park except for the very cool museum.
