Trier sightseeing

Porta Nigra
The Porta Nigra, meaning "Black Gate" was named because of the black colouring it took on due to chemical reactions of the originally white stone. It is the central starting point for exploring the town. The Porta Nigra is the best preserved Roman gateway north of the Alps - an incomparable connection between the historical past of today's modern town.
Cathedral of Trier
In the middle of the Trierer city centre stands today the Trierer cathedral at the former palace of Konstantin, which was torn down in the early 4th century by the biggest Christian church of the antiquity. The most precious relic of the Trierer cathedral is the 'heiliger Rock', the tunic of Christ. After the crucifixion of Christ, the imperial mother Helena brought the undivided garment of Christ to Trier. The 'heiliger Rock' was not mentioned in history until the 11th century. The history of the 'heiliger Rock' checks out only until the 12th century when it was brought on May 1st, 1196 from the west choir to the new altar of the east choir.
Palace of Trier
The palace was used as the residence of the Trierer electors from the 17th century till 1794. The Renaissance and rococo construction had been founded partially on the base of the Roman Konstantin Basilica. So in the 19th century the west wing of the palace was reconstructed to establish the basilica again. After the expropriation of the electors under Napoleon, the palace was used as barracks in the 19th century and at the beginning of the 20th century by French and Prussian troops. Today the building accommodates different authorities. Parts of the north wing are used by the Protestant municipality, parts of the south wing serve representative purposes. The southern palace garden has been available as a park for the public since the beginning of the 20th century.
Roman Bridge
The 2nd century AD Roman bridge (Römerbrücke) crosses the Moselle River, the oldest bridge north of the Alps still crossed by modern traffic.
Basilica
The so-called basilica, the throne room of emperor Konstantin, is the biggest room that has survived from antiquity. The Romans wanted to express the size and power of the empire through their architecture, and what they managed here is especially impressively. The gigantic hall is so big that a 7-second echo answers when the the main organ plays one note!
Church of Our Lady
The "Liebfrauenkirche" (German for "Church of Our Lady") is one of the most important early Gothic cathedrals in Germany and falls into the category of architectural tradition of the French Gothic cathedrals. The Church of Our Lady is closed until 8/14/2010 due to rennovation work.
