Trieris claimed to be the most ancient city in Germany.
It is believed that the city was founded in 16 BC by emperor Augustus. The monumental structures from that time that have survived up to this day – the main tourist attractions of Trier – are nowadays under the protection of UNESCO.
All roads In Trier lead to the ‘Porta Nigra’ gates (“The Black Gates”) – the most famous historical monument of the city. They were built by the Romans in the 2nd century.
The street leading from the gate into the city end at a crossroads near the Roman Imperial basilica. The exact time when it was built is unknown. Presumably, it’s the 310th year.
To the right of the Imperial Basilica, the Palace of the Elector stands, which is now occupied by the district’s government.
The windows of the public servantsoverlook a picturesque green meadow with fountains and the ruins of ancient Roman imperial baths, the total length of which almost reached 250 meters. Up to the present day, only a small fragment of their eastern part has preserved, but the size is still amazing. Trier’s baths were the largest in the Roman Empire.
As forthe relatively modern history, the most famous native of the city is Karl Marx. He was born here on May 5, 1818 in the house #664 on the Brückenstraßestreet.
The German Social Democratic Party (SPD), Germany’s oldest political party, bought his house in 1928 to open a museum here.
The museum welcomes more than 30 thousand visitors annually. One third of them comes from the PRC. For Chinese tourists, the house in which the future father of world communism was born, is one of the main places of interest in Germany.
