Immerse yourself in the surrounding history and get a real sense of what it would have been like to live in Roman times. Incredible Roman remains still exist which still have the power to astound. You can visit the world famous Porta Nigra or even see how the Romans entertained themselves at the Imperial Baths.
Despite its small size, you are never short of things to do. Apart from extensive Roman artefacts you can also discover masterpieces of the Romanticism, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque era. And if you have had your fill of historical treasures for one day, why not try browsing through the Hauptmarkt, which is the main market of Trier. This lively market is where European cultures and cuisines meet to produce an international flavour of sights, sounds and tastes. From restaurants and cafes to museums and music, there is always something to delight the senses. Cultural highlights include, the vibrant Mosel Musikfestival, the exhilarating Roman Spectacle “Brot und Spiel” (Bread and Circuses) and a number of delectable wine and city festivals. For shopaholics, there is the famous Christmas market, which is done in a distinctly German style.
