KARL MARX HAUS
This was also on the top of my list to do when we reached Trier. Karl Marx was born in this 18th century old baroque house and today it houses a museum dedicated to his life through the ages, his intellectual work, allies and the entire legacy left behind by him.
This is Germany's oldest bishop's church highlighting Roman architecture. This aesthetically beautiful church is a must see in Trier to feel engulfed into the preserved gothic, roman and baroque elements of this contrasting century.
MUSEUM AM DON TRIER
Just around the corner from the church, Museum Am Don Trier is a museum portraying Trier Dom the church. Like display of restoration of old crucifixes, wear and icons. A small museum with preserved unusual yet fascinating Roman ceiling paintings, this museum is a must visit if you wish to indulge in gothic history for something more than to kill time there.
INDULGE IN LOCAL PRODUCE
My favourite part of the trip, FOOD. There are a number of restaurants and cafes serving cuisine using fresh local produce. The time we were there blanched fat asparagus were in season. It was unlike anything we have seen and we itched to try that at a restaurant with a menu exclusively dedicated to these asparagus that were being sold at almost every stall at the Sunday farmer's market. Walking around in the centre we stumbled across some stalls serving piping hot fries with as assortment of sauces, gelato stands and of course Belgium waffles with cold beer at one of the many cafes.
Before settling down at one of the restaurants for some delicious wine from around the region after sun down, we walked the city on foot exploring places away from the bustling city centre to the romantic bridge on Moselle river and looking out for more Roman ruins. It's also recommended to book a walking guided tour of the city, where the guide takes you around the city on foot explaining the history of this charming little city and more about the embedded Roman influences everywhere you go.
