St Mary's Column, Trier

(3.7/5 based on 50 reviews on the web)
An easily recognizable landmark overlooking Trier, St Mary's Column offers panoramic views of the city and its river. Constructed in the 19th century using donations made by ordinary Trier citizens, the statue of Saint Mary stands on a 40 m (130 ft) pillar and gazes protectively over the surrounding area. Though not particularly steep, the uphill walk does require a good pair of comfortable shoes. Don't forget to charge your camera, and pack a light snack and some drinking water. Arrange to visit St Mary's Column and other attractions in Trier using our Trier vacation generator.

  • It's worth a visit. If you like to shoot, you will find the most beautiful views of the old Roman town here. Tip: A visit to the dawn.

  • St. Mary´s Column, is located at the ato Hill, on the other side of the Roman bridge, Roman bridge, and from the river Moselle. Emerges pride on the mountain, and strolling along the banks of the river is seen perfectly. Bus, you can access to this point in the city, by car, even walking. The best views of the city are from this point St. Mary´s Column.
