The Porta Nigra was once the entrance gate to the city of Trier. Today it is one of the most visited attractions of the city.
The late baroque church of St. Paulin with elaborate interior decorations designed by Balthasar Neumann is definitely worth a visit.
The Electoral Palace and the adjoining palace gardens, located directly between the Rheinisches Landesmuseum and the Constantine Basilica, are good places to relax and walk.
The gothic Steipe, one of the many buildings on the medieval main market in Trier, was completely destroyed in the Second World War and then rebuilt through years of hard work.
The brightly illuminated cathedral and the adjoining Liebfrauenkirche in the dark. Both buildings – and seven more – belong to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Visit the “Rome of the North” with its many cultural sites, shopping and leisure activities. Stroll through the city center from the Porta Nigra to the cathedral and the “Liebfrauenkirche”, pass by the “Kaiserthermen” spas or visit the Roman amphitheater in the Olewig district.
