Trier condensed into one day

What all can you experience in Trier in one day? 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.

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.
