Historical Pfalzel

Some 3 miles (5 km) down the Moselle from Trier’s historical Old City, the incorporated suburb of Pfalzel, the Roman “palatiolum” (the little palace of Late Roman emperors), bears witness to the glory days of Late Antiquity when a fortified palace was erected here in the mid-4th century. Its remains are preserved in the medieval collegiate foundation and in the ruins of the castle built by Trier archbishops. A walking tour comprises 1700 years of history and the picturesque sights such as the collegiate church, the house of the archbishop’s representative, and the massive fortification walls, recently restored in part.
