Roman Monuments in Trier


Welcome to Trier, Germany's oldest city. There were settlements in the Trier valley as early as the 3rd century B.C. and Trier was the first 'town' north of the Alps to bear that label with justification. It is a fascinating travel destination with historical monuments, churches and Roman backdrops which will make any visit to this romantic Moselle city an unforgettable experience.

The most famous sites are silent but eloquent witnesses to magnificent cultural achievements, such as the Roman Amphitheatre, the Imperial and Barbara Baths, the Roman Bridge, the Church of Our Lady and of course the 1,800-year-old 'Porta Nigra'. But there is plenty more than just the inner city to discover. Embedded in the heights of the Hunsrück and Eifel Mountains are peaceful vineyards, where the Celts and Romans cultivated their vines 2,000 years ago, and the beautiful Moselle Valley is a particularly desirable travel destination for those seeking rest and relaxation.

We have some great hotels in Trier for you to select from but we can also offer trips all over Germany. for example, we have Berlin city breaks and hotels in Oberstdorf.
