City Museum (Stadtmuseum Simeonstift)

St Peter, Helena and the Market Cross – the Stadtmuseum has them all. Anyone who has admired the statues of saints on the Steipe at Hauptmarkt, wandered around the Petrusbrunnen (St Peter’s Fountain) in awe, and clambered up the Market Cross (Marktkreuz) simply must visit the Stadtmuseum, for it houses the originals of all these sculptures. And as if that weren’t enough, visitors will also meet Trebeta, the legendary founder of Trier. The large oil painting was created by Claudius Markar for the Trier city council.

This alone would make a visit worthwhile. But there’s also the two impressive city models on level one, which show Trier around 1800 and Trier after the bombings of World War II. Plus the original Tietz statues from the Palace Garden. Porcelain made in Trier. High-quality lithographs by Johann Anton Ramboux depicting Trier scenes. The throne of Trier’s archbishop, Johann Philipp von Walderdorff, created by Abraham Roentgen around 1760. The foundations of the ancient city wall in the basement, the Trier Cinema with 80 selected short films from 1904 to today on the ground floor, and of course the benefactor and clothing collections, with their inimitable atmosphere on the top floor. And once you’ve looked through all the exhibits, the Stadtmuseum also provides the best place to process everything you’ve seen: The cloister of the old St Simeon’s Collegiate Church (Simeonstift), which gave the museum its name.

A must for: Statue enthusiasts. Original. Fashion victims. Moviegoers and art aficionados.

PSSSST! THE INSIDER TIP:
Family tours, crawling courses, upcycling workshops, museum rallies, yoga at the museum – few other museums in Trier are as creative when it comes to new and unusual options for various interest groups. So it’s worth checking back to look at the latest three-month programme before any visit to the city.
