Just over the border in Rhineland Palatinate and with some ten UNESCO World Heritage sites, Trier is steeped in history and a terrific place to view some fascinating buildings.
The Romans were highly active erecting structures for a variety of purposes. The cathedral is the oldest of its kind in Germany; the Roman Imperial Baths are considered the most impressive in the world; the Roman Imperial Throne Room is the largest surviving single-room structure from that period; the Roman Bridge is the oldest bridge in Germany; the Roman Porta Nigra or Black Gate is still in fine condition.
The building didn’t stop there. For instance, the stunning rococo Electoral Palace dates from 1615 and the Market Square reveals the Cross from 958 and the Market Fountain from 1595.
Without a doubt, Trier offers visitors with a love of history a great experience. Furthermore, Luxembourg is a stone’s throw away.
