Immerse yourself in a captivating time when great policies were made and hierarchical disputes were fought, when a holy robe first saw the light of day – or, more specifically: the light of the Domfreihof, when a Greek monk lived as a hermit in the Porta Nigra, and when Trier also influenced the election of the emperor of the Holy Roman Empire.
