Oldest City in Germany
Trier may be the oldest city in Germany, founded long before the Roman times. It sits in a valley between low, vine-covered, sandstone hills in the celebrated Mosel wine region. Monuments from the Roman period and well-preserved architectural jewels from later ages have earned the city a spot on the World Heritage list. Trier is also a university town of about 25,000 students. The young population of academic achievers makes this more than just a historic site of ancient ruins and distinguished medieval structures. The leafy urban center is known for its vibrant atmosphere and outstanding cuisine. These both are greatly influenced by the proximity to Luxembourg and France. Walking may be the best method for sightseeing in Trier's visitor-friendly old town, but you can also rent a bicycle to get to the various World Heritage-listed Roman ruins and modern tourist attractions. Trier is in Rhineland-Palatinate. Make your own Trier vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our Germany trip tool .
