Trier claims to be the oldest city in Germany, dating back to 16BC. Oddly, rather than claiming to have been a settlement that grew into a city, it is believed Trier was founded as a city, however in the 5th century it was destroyed by Germanic tribes and transformed into a much smaller town. Today the population numbers 100,000, however there is still something of a small town atmosphere here.

There is plenty of history to be soaked up here, from the well preserved Roman city gate Porta Nigra and the Roman amphitheatre to the impressive Constantine Basilica.

Trier has transport links to Koblenz and Luxembourg thanks to a fast rail system, making it a very easy city to access.
