The oldest city in Germany was known to the Romans as Augusta Treverorum. Today, the Roman monuments are part of the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage. The Romans not only shaped the city architecturally, they also brought the well-loved wine. So today, in addition to the diverse sights, the city impresses with its extremely tranquil location on the Moselle River, partly surrounded by the lush vineyards of the region. Thanks to its university, Trier is also considered a student city.
