Trier accommodation – Take a journey back in time in this historic German city
Trier accommodation is set in possibly the oldest city in Germany and it has a lot of history to show for it so it's a must for history lovers. Start your journey into history with the main market square as it's the centre of medieval Trier. Here you can access the Jewish Quarter and Cathedral. Trier holiday apartments are surrounded by UNESCO World Heritage Sites, most of which are from the Roman era. The Aula Palatina is a popular place to visit which is a Roman basilica built by emperor Constantine in the 4th century. Trier is also famous for the Porta Nigra which is the best-preserved Roman gate north of the Alps.
The Karl Marx House is another interesting historic place to visit. It is the house where the socialist and communist Karl Marx was born and it now houses the history of communism and about the life and writing's of this prominent figure. A historic but without a doubt beautiful place to visit during your stay in Trier accommodation is the Eltz Castle which is a medieval castle surrounded by lush greenery and looks like it's come straight out of a fairytale. The castle, which lies between Koblenz and Trier, has a history dating back 850 years.
Situated in the Mosel wine region in Rhineland-Palatinate, Trier holiday apartments are a great base to travel to neighbouring cities such as Müden (Mosel) and to nip across the border to Luxembourg. If you prefer to stay at your Trier accommodation though, sit back and have a glass of wine in the evening to reflect on the sightseeing you've done.
If you enjoyed Trier, you'll love its twin city, Weimar. Located in Thuringia, the green heart of Germany, it has been home to German icons ranging from Martin Luther to Wassily Kandinsky, and there's just so much to see and do.
