"What Happened to my Intro ?" Trier by mustertal

Trier Travel Guide: 615 reviews and 1,597 photos

I did write an intro to Trier, but it must have got lost someplace out their in Cyberspace during the the re vamp on VT.

It was five years ago I visited Trier for the second time and five years previous to that (if that makes sense).

Trier is reported to be the oldest place in Germany and is known for the Porta Nigra, (Black Gate). It was also the birth place of Karl Marks. The Cathedral is a must to visit, and the town square with it's shops, cafes and wine bars are a good place to sit and people watch or just to rest your feet.

    Great page about this lovely place. I haven't been here myself, but my parents have when I still lived in Belgium. They always enjoyed it very much.

    Would you believe that I haven't been to Trier yet, although I don't live too far away from it? I'm going to make a serious effort to visit there this spring or summer. And I've made a mental note to try some of those delicious cakes in that café on market square. I'm glad you wrote a tip about it :-)

    Hey mustertal, I like your page on Trier, it brings back a lot of memories about the place. ! I am 24 now but I remember about 4 years ago being there and drinking with these mad American soldiers in some nightclub! Keep up the good work on the page!

    good little page - years since we were there. I remember a twisted ankle from a fall on the cobbles!

    Would love to visit this "oldest" city in Germany, beautiful photos you took. Quite right to always remember to bring your camera...in my case, one has to also remember not to drop the camera :-)
