Trier is a UNESCO World Heritage City in the southwest of Germany in the Moselle wine region and is located not far from the Luxembourg border. The city was founded by the Romans and still has some well-preserved Roman monuments such as the Porta Nigra, the remains of Roman bathhouses, an amphitheater near the city center and a stone bridge over the Moselle. The Rheinische Landesmuseum shows among other things finds from the Roman period. Trier Cathedral is one of the many Catholic churches in the city. The Romanesque building dates from the 11th century, but parts of the reddish sandstone walls date back to the 4th century. Right next to the cathedral is the Gothic Church of Our Lady (13th century).
