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 two more highlights: The two extremely precious early medieval manuscripts, the Egbert Codex and the Ada Gospels, have been included in the UNESCO World Document Heritage List. You can see them in the treasury of the Scientific Library of the City of Trier.
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
