Bike Touring Highlight
The nice village Prüm is characterized by the basilica St. Salvator directly in the city center. Charlemagne once had the first Salvator church built. The abbey church of the Benedictine Abbey of Prüm was so richly decorated as the place of the relic of the sandals of Christ that it was called the "Golden Church". Inside the basilica you can admire the baroque high altar, the reliquary and the emperor's tomb of Emperor Lothar, the grandson of Charlemagne.

The basilica is not only very impressive.
The history and stories of Pippin, Emperor Charlemagne, Louis the Pious and Emperor Lothar, who entwine themselves around this basilica and the abbey, are awe inspiring.
Here is perhaps not only the nucleus of the great Franconian empire and its heirs, but also the nucleus of Europe.
