Specialty Museum Museum
One of the most important archeological museums in Germany, Rheinisches Landesmuseum exhibits the history and culture of Trier and the Mosel Valley--and includes the world's largest Roman gold coin hoard of more than 2,600 gold coins,. The museum's approximately 4,500 objects document 200,000 years of history from prehistoric times and the Roman period to the Middle Ages and the Baroque period. Take advantage of a free audio guide while visiting the museum. If you can, catch one of the two screenings of "In The Realm of Shades," a spatial theater production set against giant Roman burial monuments.

Where to stay in Trier

Trier offers a small selection of places to stay within the city. A youth hostel and a camper parking equipped with showers and toilet but no power caters to the budget travelers visiting the city. For more comfort, look for hotels in the Olewig area or Porta Nigra. Several four-star hotels provide even more luxury at relatively affortable price.
