Ruin Landmark Must See
Tour Porta Nigra, one of the most well-preserved Roman structures in Germany. That's amazing, given that it dates back to the second century. Built of large, gray, sandstone slabs, this is the largest Roman city gate north of the Alps. Admire the impressive architecture as you learn more about the area's Roman heritage. You can explore the interior of the gate before heading to the top to enjoy the city views. Jump back in time with an informational tour led by a Roman centurion-clad guide.
