Trier in 2000 years

Trier is the oldest city in Germany. Trier is situated very close to the border of Luxembourg and it's one of the most beautiful and well-preserved cities I have ever seen.

One of Triers famous citizens were Karl Marx, who was born in Trier in 1818. His house is now a museum.


This sculpture was presented celebrating Triers 2000 years anniversary in 1984.

Below is a picture of the Basilica of Constantine built around 300 AD and named after Constantine the Great and the Electorial Palace Palace of Trier (1794)

Guten Tag, Asta! :-D

What can I say?
I envy you! Enormously!!
Germany is in some parts so extremely beautiful that I can´t even describe what I see.
I've never been to Trier; but it's a noted tip. Thank's!

Hm. By the way... Trier. Von Trier..? Is there any connection?

By the way. Are you on holiday? Please show some more pictures.

Take care,

Ulrika

That palace built so long ago and still so beautiful is a testimony to yesterday's craftsmen. It won't happen with today's builders.

There is an immense amount of history associated with Trier...not only Constantine, but his mother...and, yes, Karl Marx, plus the horrible massacres of the Jews...

Looks to be a gorgeous city these days. Thanks for letting us see part of it...perhaps there will be addition Trier pics coming up?

This sounds and looks like a really wonderful place. I want to visit Germany and I've always wanted to see Luxembourg. I'm going to keep this in mind for our next vacation.

Thanks so much for your very nice comments.

I've been there in the late 70s, so there was no sculpture, but I remember the palace and the basilica. Great photos, Asta!
