City experience Trier

As Germany's oldest city and an ancient UNESCOWorld Heritage Site, Trier is an absolute experience! Even while strolling and shopping in the pedestrian zone, you will discover countless historic house facades. In addition to the city's most important landmark, the Porta Nigra, there are many other historic buildings to discover. Directly on the pedestrian zone, for example, you will find the cathedral, the basilica and a little further away you can view a wide variety of exhibitions in the Landesmuseum.

"A popular and well-known Mosel insider tip is the wine stand on the main market square in Trier! Here you can meet friends, old acquaintances or simply get to know new people. There's always something going on at the wine stall and there are excellent wines from changing Mosel winegrowers every week."

"It's like a fairy tale - that's what I think to myself every time I'm exploring the Ruwer Valley. A perfect example of this is the vineyard Sommerau Schlossberg. The river glistening in the sun, the biodiversity in the vineyards and the medieval castle ruins in the village center transport you to another world."

Lieser steps, Wittlich

Since 2018, a recreation area has been created in the middle of the city of Wittlich direclty next to the Liser river: the Lieser steps (Lieserstufen). In addition to the diverse gastronomic offerings in the immediate vicinity and the playground on the other side of the river, there is something for the whole family. The programme is rounded off with suitable events directly on the Lieser steps ("Wittlicher Eventsommer"). A cosy glass of wine directly on the Lieser and live music from the stage opposite? Sounds like a great venture and a Moselle pearl that not everyone expects!
