Description Xanten is a historic town in the North Rhine-Westphalia state of Germany, located in the district of Wesel. Xanten is known for the Archaeological Park (one of the largest in the world), its medieval picturesque city centre with Xanten Cathedral and many museums, its large man-made lake for various watersport activities as well as high standard of living. It is visited by approximately one million tourists a year. Big events include the Xantener Sommerfestspiele (a prestigious classical music festival lasting 2-3 weeks every year), the annual Xantener Montmartre where artists from all over the world show their latest works as well as the annual German sandcastle-building championship. Xanten is one of Germany's most affluent communitites.Protestantism arrived in 1572, but at the beginning of the 20th century just 5% of the population were of Protestant denomination. By the beginning of the 21st century, the Protestant population increased to some 20%. As Xanten was inherited with Cleves by the Margraviate of Brandenburg in the 17th century, the Protestant church was placed on an equal footing with the Roman Catholic Church, as confirmed by the Contract of Xanten on 12 November 1614. Thereupon a church was built at the Großer Markt (Great market place), which was expanded by a spire in 1622.
