3 Days in Trier!
What all can you experience
in Trier in three days? Here are a few suggestions
to better plan your trip to Germany's oldest city:
You can go on a walking
tour all by yourself or take part in a scheduled city tour.
They begin at 10:30 a.m. at the Porta Nigra (in German) and last about 2 hours.
More information on our scheduled city tours for individual guests
Walk from the end of your tour - from the Imperial Baths - into the city center and enjoy a really relaxed lunch. Now you have time for an extended shopping expedition through the Trier pedestrian zone.
Now how about a visit to the picturesque old fishermen's district Zurlauben? Have a seat in one of the lovely garden restaurants - with a view directly onto the Moselle. Between April and the end of October, you can take a boat excursion. The departure dock is only a few steps away! Choose the date you want to come and pick out your preferred route even before you get here: www.trier-today.de
A real highlight could be
at the end of the eventful day: visit a performance with
the Gladiator Valerius in the Roman Amphitheater (Friday-Sunday). In
the fight arena, the gladiator visits the gloomy passages, the cellar and dungeon
with you and thrills with his tales of his life as a gladiator (performance
in German). Because of the limited number of participants, advance reservation
is highly recommended.
In the morning you have the opportunity of visiting the Bishop's Museum, the Roman Archaeological Museum or the Toy Museum.
For the afternoon, we recommend the wine-growers' district of Trier-Olewig, where you can taste noble wines.
For the evening, you'll have to make a big decision! Trier Theater, Trier Arena, and the Europa Hall offer a large variety of events and performances - or go on a stroll to the many Trier pubs and bars. Have you tried Trier's "national" drink - Viez, the local hard cider? All dates at a glance: www.trier-today.de
Rent a bicycle and undertake a day tour along the lovely cycling trails on the Moselle or Saar ... or go on a train excursion or in your car into neighboring Luxembourg. Driving to Luxembourg City takes about 45 minutes. In case of bad weather, you could substitute a day of relaxation and wellness in one of Trier’s “wellness temples”.
In the evening, you could round off an eventful day of sports activity with a typical Trier or even a Roman dinner.
