UNESCO World Heritage on the Mosel

Half of the vast Roman Empire was once ruled from the Mosel. The power of the emperors who resided in Trier extended from Scotland to Morocco. Many ancient monuments there still bear witness to this. These are quite rightly UNESCO World Heritage sites!

The ensemble of the cathedral and the Liebfrauenkirche is also one of them. Trier Cathedral is the oldest episcopal church in Germany and dates back to Emperor Constantine. The Liebfrauenkirche is one of the two most beautiful and earliest Gothic churches in Germany.

And another highlight: The Early Medieval Codex Egberti in the Treasury of Trier Municipal Library has been added to UNESCO Memory of the World Register.

If you follow the Mosel to the Rhine, you will reach Koblenz. And it is precisely here – at the Deutsches Eck – that the UNESCO World Heritage Upper Middle Rhine Valley begins. At Stolzenfels Castle, you can experience the romance of the Rhine in a special way


Save the date!

From June 25 to November 27, 2022, a major state exhibition will be held in Trier: 
"The Fall of the Roman Empire" - presented on a total of 2,000 square meters in 31 exhibition halls of the three museums Rheinisches Landesmuseum Trier, Stadtmuseum Simeonstift and Museum am Dom Trier.
