In the oldest city of Germany, you encounter history with every step. Trier, or “Augusta Treverorum” as it was called back then, has been the seat of several Roman emperors, to whom we owe the
magnificent buildings still seen nowadays. In the 4th century, the whole Roman Empire north of the Alps was ruled from Trier.
Today, Trier and the direct vicinity alone have nine World Heritage sites to offer. Walk in the footsteps left behind by the Romans and dive into the story of a fascinating city.
Magnificent half-timbered houses and old wine-growing estates remind you of the origins of Bernkastel-Kues as a commercial centre in medieval times. The “Bernkasteler Doktor”, a world-famous wine, is grown at the steeply rising slopes of the Moselle valley. On a walk through the vineyards you will reach the ruin of “Burg Landshut”, which is located high above the town. You will enjoy the picturesque view of the meandering river and the historic town.
First time visitors to Luxembourg will be surprised by its unusual position on a sandstone platform. Next to steeply rising rocks and fortification walls, the incisive valleys of Alzette and Pétrusse touch the lower city with innumerable bridges and viaducts. You will be enchanted by the comfortable old part of town, with its ancient cathedrals, lively squares and street cafés.
