Trier - The largest Roman metropolis north of the Alps

To this day, the colossal Porta Nigra town gate (UNESCO world heritage) still marks the largest Roman metropolis north of the Alps. In the historical old town of Trier, hundreds of years of architectural history blend together with trendy cafés and cozy wine taverns to create a captivating atmosphere.

Sparkling moments are guaranteed in Trier where the oldest wine cellar in Germany (Vereinigte Hospitien) can be visited. It was certified by the German Wine Institue as a highlight of the wine culture! The Petrisberg above the Roman amphitheatre is the perfect location to enjoy a picturesque sunset. The panoramic view from St. Mary's Column down to the sun-drenched meander of the Moselle river is matchless for romantic evenings. Stylish candlelight dinners await you in the restaurants on the terraces of the Moselle river while a plethora of excellent meals and wines are to be found within the historic walls of the vineyards. 

Our latest recommendation!

Karl Marx 200 years anniversary

  • The city is already preparing for a very special birthday: Karl Marx would have been 200 years old in 2018 – a great regional exhibition will celebrate this occasion (5 May to 21 October 2018). Also we recommend a visit of the Karl Marx house

UNESCO World Heritage
Trier Antiquity Card is ideal to explore the nine World Heritage Sites.

  • The Porta Nigra is the best place for visitors to begin their tour of Trier.
  • The so-called Basilika, Constantine's throne room, is the largest surviving single-room structure from Roman times.
  • The present Cathedral stands on top of a former Constantinian Palace. After Constantine's last visit to Trier in A.D. 328/9, the palace was leveled in 330 and replaced by the largest Christian church in Antiquity.
  • And don't miss the other UNESCO World Heritage sites Imperial Baths (Kaiserthermen), Barbara Baths, Amphitheatre, Church of our beloved Lady, Roman Bridge and the Igel Column.
