The Secret of the Porta Nigra

Want to be there live as the Porta Nigra is defended against invading barbarians? Well, you can! Participants of the interactive ‘The secret of the Porta Nigra’ tour can expect a fascinating journey through time back to Roman Trier 1800 years ago, when life was dangerous and daily work tiring – especially for Roman soldiers. The centurion consequently has a lot to talk about: Played by a professional actor, he tells of glittering splendour and grim battles, of fame and transience, of Roman pride and barbarian defiance.

Will they be right? Find out yourself!
