Geschichte erleben in Trier

Trier is the oldest city in Germany and an historic monument in itself. Founded in 16 BC as “Augusta Treverorum” it rose to fame as “Roma Secunda” (Rome the Second).

Nowhere else in the country does the Roman past come to life with such grandeur as it does here in the one-time Imperial Residence. The Black Gate or Porta Nigra, the Amphitheatre, the Imperial Baths and the Constantine Basilica – all listed as UNESCO international historic sites – vividly reflect the Roman lifestyle on an impressive scale.

The metropolis on the Moselle features other fascinating sights testifying to bygone architectural styles – Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque. The Cathedral, the mediaeval Marketplace or Hauptmarkt and the Electoral Palace are other historic sites symbolizing a great past that continues to linger on into the present. As Privy Councillor von Goethe once acknowledged, Trier rests in an “enchanting region” surrounded by natural scenic splendours: the heights and woodlands of the Hünsruck and Eiffel regions combined with the vineyards flanking the Moselle, Saar and Ruwer rivers – situated in the very heart of the four-country axis. Just a thirty-minute drive to the French border, a short extra distance to Belgium with Luxembourg almost on the doorstep.
