Trier Germany is seasoned in Roman history including Julius Caesar and Napoleon Bonaparte, being the oldest city founded in 16 BC. Trier was the first city in Germany we saw that had such an impressive market place square. The entrance to the square is this building known as the Porta Nigra also known as the Black Gate and is the gate to the city built in 200AD.
Even though this town has all the old world charm oozing thousands of years of history it possesses, it still offers an element of surprise with its unexpected modern day conveniences.
