UNESCO World Heritage
There are few cultural heritage sites that are so outstanding that they are granted UNESCO World Heritage status.
Ten of these special cultural gems can be found along the Mosel: the monumental buildings of the Roman imperial residence Augusta Trevereorum, Trier Cathedral as the oldest Episcopal church in Germany, and the neighbouring Liebfrauenkirche (Church of Our Lady), one of the two earliest, most beautiful, Gothic churches in Germany.
In addition, the medieval Egbert Codex, on display at the treasury of the Trier City Research Library, is listed on the UNESCO Memory of the World Register.
And that’s not all: the city of Koblenz forms the gateway to the Upper Middle Rhine Valley, another UNESCO World Heritage Site.
