"A village created along a ruin."
          — Map Description

Riesengang is a village appearing in Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk.


"Before dusk settled over the world— No one even thinks about the vestiges of a land once brimming with water. Even so, people cling to this land, vigorously living out their lives. "
          — Narration

It's also known as "The Village of The Ruin". The village itself is located upon a giant gear-like ruin[1]. To be able to excavate artifacts from the ruins, a village was established[2].

For a long time, plenty of useful minerals and ancient relics were excavated from these ruins. The town was founded by humans as a settlement at the ancient foot of the mountain for mining the limited natural resources.

Now, excavations have been finished for the better part of the ruins. However, in the surrounding natural resources can still be found, and there should be yet unexcavated areas of the ruins.

As a result of the examination of ancient relics, etc. excavated from the ruins, it has become clear that the ruins in all likelihood once were a water pumping facility.


The ruin of Riesengang has three parts, and connects to the ruins of Oesten Swamp. The ruin was most likely a water pumping facility when it was still in use. The ruin also has plenty of slag-type monsters that the player can fight. Within the Middle Area of the ruins, the Fortress and Tank are located.

Regina's House

The home of Regina. After the event that occurs when traveling to Riesengang for the first time, the player can use this place as a workshop. Many events in Regina's event path also take place at her home. 

Village Plaza

Most events that take place between Marion and Glide can be seen here. The Homunculus merchant will also be located here later on in the game. All of the delivery requests from villagers in Riesengang can also be found here.

Foot of Village

The exit and entrance to the village. Pana can be seen here. Also the location of the warehouse and house. 


The haybales at the top of the stairs can be examined for some Dry Roots. The table in the middle of the room can be examined for free Baguettes, a good healing item early on in the game. 

Boss's House

Glide's home. Nothing of interest, unless Ayesha wants to talk with Regina's boss. 


  • In the "narration episode" about Riesengang of the World Guide CD, Riesengang was referred to as a small town instead of a village.
  • This is the first place where Ayesha encounters Marion.
