Friends, Germans, Countrymen: Visit Germany’s Oldest City
Sitting on the banks of the Moselle River, Trier is the oldest city in Germany dating back to around 16 BC. Known for its monuments and a unique history involving an Assyrian prince, Trier also has the dubious honor of being the birthplace of Karl Marx.
Your bus tour takes 60 minutes, offering an introduction to the city and seven stops along its route. Highlights include the Porta Nigra, the Roman City Gate from the 2nd century; an Amphitheater which showcases re-enactments of gladiator contests during summer; and a stop at Konstantin-Basilika & Kaiserthermen, the second-largest enclosed Roman building in the world where you can stroll the Palace Garden and Imperial Baths.
Trier is well accessed by train from other popular German cities, but only Trier can claim to be the oldest. Come experience the antiquity.
