The city of Trier is described as the second Rome north of the Alps, and quite rightly so. As a former imperial residence, the Moselle metropolis will be showing the major state exhibition "The Fall of the Roman Empire" from 25 June - 27 November 2022. In addition, there are numerous monuments that bring the history of the oldest city in Germany to life. Nine of these attractions have been granted UNESCO World Heritage status. Porta Nigra, the Roman city gate, is the most striking landmark in Trier. The city, which sits right on the Moselle amidst picture-perfect vineyards, is the perfect destination to enjoy a combination of culture and culinary treats.
There are an impressive nine UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the ‘second Rome’ north of the Alps. There is no other city with quite so many in such a small space. The most famous of these sites has to be the Porta Nigra, the Roman city gate. The Aula Palatina (Basilica of Constantine) houses the largest surviving single room from ancient times. Trier Cathedral is the oldest episcopal church in Germany. The Imperial Baths, the Barbara Baths, the Amphitheatre, the Liebfrauenkirche, the Roman Bridge and the Igel Column are the other World Heritage Sites in Trier.
