Trier is the district capital of the government district of the same name, episcopal see, university town and cultural, traffic and economic center of the Trier region.
The Porta Nigra, the landmark of the city. Photo: ZenderIf the Treverians heard 2000 years ago what the Roman Emperor Augustus intended to do on the Moselle, they were understandably unenthusiastic.
For centuries, the Celtic tribe had lived in the Moselle valley, survived the Roman invasion under Caesar largely unscathed, and now wanted his son demolish their settlements and build a new Roman city? Augustus knew how to approve of the Treverer. He connected the new metropolis to the Roman trunk and commercial network, naming it not only for himself, but also for the Treveri: Augusta Treverorum, founded 16 BC. Chr.
Historic fountain at the Kornmarkt. Photo: Zender Today, this founding date gives Trier the title of "oldest city in Germany". And even the grandsons of the Treverer do not detract from the Romans, on the contrary: The Trier people are proud of their "Pochta", as the Porta Nigra, the Roman city gate, in the Moselle-Franconian dialect, as well as the basilica, the amphitheater or the imperial baths ,��
Eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites are within walking distance in and around the city center - almost all of them were built by the Romans. But while strolling on the cobblestones of the pedestrian area, past the fragrant fruit and flower market, the lovely displays of small shops and the stretched parasols of the numerous cafes you can also go on a journey through time later epochs: Medieval residential towers, half-timbered houses from the Renaissance , electoral buildings or the birthplace of Karl Marx - in Trier you will discover history at every turn.
The cathedral court yard. Even though Porta Nigra, the "black gate", welcomes visitors, Trier is colorful all year round.����
In the gentle spring green you stroll through the palace garden, earning your first ice cream of the season by hike to the White House forest or by bike along the Moselle to Luxembourg, while next to you the sun's rays sparkle in the blue of the Mosel.
In the summer months you will be fascinated by the particularly rich cultural offer. In the medieval Brunnenhof you swing and jazz with thoroughbred musicians from Trier and its surroundings, at the Altstadtfest you rock with the whole city on several big and small stages, and at the Moselmusikfestival you dive into the classical concert world of national and international rank.
In the autumn, the time of the color detectors came: In front of the window, red and yellow leaves blow through the air, but what about the other side of the glass? Is the Riesling more ivory or golden, rather pale yellow or pearly? Discuss this question directly with a winemaker in the winery or at a wine tasting in the city center. Connoisseurs will not just have a good time drinking: feast on the original recipes of the Roman gourmet Apicius, enjoy fine haute cuisine or the simple Trier national dish "Teerdich" made from mashed potatoes and sauerkraut.
In winter, finally, one of the most beautiful Christmas markets in Germany attracts to Trier's main market. Marvel at the large Christmas pyramid on the cathedral courtyard and smell the scent of fresh gingerbread and cinnamon waffles. Anyone who does not find all the Christmas presents here can use Trier as a starting point for short trips to Luxembourg, France or Belgium.
And of course, culture lovers will be tempted by the numerous museums in Trier, most notably the Rheinische Landesmuseum with the largest Roman gold coin treasure in the world.
Every year, millions of people are captivated by Trier, year after year. Become a Treverer too!
