It’s no surprise that Germany’s oldest city is full of fascinating ancient sites, many of which date back to Roman occupation from 17 BC, and helped give Trier the nickname of ‘Rome of the North’.[ReadMoreMob] Close to the border with Luxembourg, Trier sits on banks on the Moselle and at the foothills of the Eifel, Hunsrück and Mosel mountains.

Among Trier’s ancient marvels are many well-persevered Roman monuments, including the outstanding Porta Nigra city gates, amphitheatre, Moselle Bridge and Barbara Baths, all of which have been classified as UNESCO World Heritage sites. In addition, the city is home to Germany’s oldest cathedral, the High Cathedral of Saint Peter in Trier, and the remarkable gothic Church of our Lady (Liebfrauenkirche).

Aside from the city’s architectural delights, Trier falls within the Moselle wine region, with vineyards lining the steep banks of the river and used to grow Riesling grapes. The grapes are used to produce the famous wine of the same name, known the world over for its sweet and fruity flavour.
