Roman Roots in Germany's Oldest City

Germany’s oldest city and capital of the Western Roman Empire until the 3rd century, Trier is overflowing with exquisite architecture and Roman ruins such as the Amphitheatre and Porta Nigra gate. The colossal Cathedral Trier is also the oldest of its kind in Germany.

Historic landmarks continue with the 2nd-century Roman bridge that crosses over the Moselle river, which also passes through nearby Luxembourg and France. Cruises along the Moselle start in Koblenz and end in Trier.

Trier was the home of Karl Marx and the 15th-century University of Trier is home to a large student population that often refers to the university as Karl-Marx-University of Trier. His birthplace is now a museum, Karl Marx House.

A wonderful example of the Christmas markets in Germany can be found each year in Trier, at Hauptmarkt Square in front of the cathedral. Make sure you check Booking.com for special deals on hotels during this period.
