You can go on a walking tour all by yourself or take part in a scheduled city tour. They begin at 1.00 p.m. at the Porta Nigra (May to October) and last about 75 min.

Walk from the end of your tour 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.

Day 2:

Visit one of the museums, which are all located directly in or next to the pedestrian area and are easy to reach.
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? Consult our event calendar for a perfect night out.

Day 3:

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.
