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.

Stroll leisurely through the four main shopping streets, Simeonstrasse, Brotstrasse, Fleischstrasse and Nagelstrasse - and you will find here the large well-known chain stores, department stores, small but fine shops as well as restaurants with very good cuisine.
You really should have a look around in Neustrasse, the extension of Brotstrasse (partly pedestrian area). There are many small interesting special shops that you shouldn't pass up. Neustrasse is a great place for fashion-conscious ladies and gentlemen.
And don't forget the side streets and cross streets located around the large shopping streets. Whether Dietrichstrasse, Brückenstrasse, Jakobstrasse, Johann-Philipp-Strasse, and many others, you will definitely find something you like.
