    In Trier city center you will find not only the usual large retail chains but also regional and local shops. The character of the university town is shaped by the young population and the proximity to Luxembourg and France.

    Trier is probably not the oldest city in Germany, the oldest city is Kempten. Nevertheless, Trier is worth a trip.

    Magnificent ensemble of different architectural styles around the spacious market square, which was relocated in 958 from the banks of the Mosel on the Roman bridge in the vicinity of the cathedral.

    The central square of Trier city center and still the location of the weekly market with many stands. From spring to autumn as well as the pedestrian zone to Porta Nigra, it is mostly hopelessly overcrowded. If you want to enjoy the history here in peace, it is best to come on Sundays in winter (or with a mask during the current Corona lockdown).

    Trier is the oldest city in Germany - and no city north of the Alps offers so many remains from Roman antiquity: the Porta Nigra, the Constantine Basilica, the Imperial Baths and the amphitheater. Together with the cathedral and the Church of Our Lady, they are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
    In addition, Trier has a picturesque market square, beautiful old houses and the Balthasar Neumann Church of St. Paulin.

    Trier's center. The market, the Christmas market and last but not least the wine stand bring together people from Trier and tourists.

    The main market in Trier is the central and one of the largest squares in the city.

    It is located in the historic city center directly in front of the cathedral city in what is now the Mitte / Gartenfeld district. The most important urban business streets meet here. In 958 Archbishop Heinrich I decorated the main market with the market cross as a sovereign symbol. The main market in the medieval city was a place for selling goods and trading.

    Two thirds of the market redevelopment with houses from the Renaissance, Baroque, Classicism and Late Historicism periods has been preserved. Today there are numerous large and representative buildings, including the Hauptwache and the former cathedral hotel in the neo-renaissance style of Germany. There is also the Steipe, a town house built around 1430 and (after being completely destroyed in World War II) rebuilt in the 20th century with the help of "creative monument preservation" (Dehio) and today the house of the city council and the red house with the slogan about the legendary foundation Triers through Trebeta. The Church of St. Gangolf is only accessible from the market through a baroque gate and is otherwise completely renovated.

    From the main market you can step through the Judenpforte into the Judengasse and get into the former Jewish quarter of the city.

    In 958 Trier received market rights. The main market became the center of medieval Trier with the Steipe, the festival hall of the city council with direct access to the city church of St. Gangolf (to be reached through the small baroque gate on the south side - the church itself is completely surrounded by houses and stalls), the official city hall Ellen Maß (reconstruction) on the Steipe, pillory (reconstructed offset in the southern corner of the market), access to the cathedral, access to the Jewish quarter and access to a total of six streets.
