    Baloon Flights

    by gypsyT. Written Oct 6, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: A hot air balloon flight is a special experience and a most unusual adventure. Enjoy the tingle during lift-off and landing, the tranquility in the balloon, the fascinating bird's eye perspective high above the Trier countryside.

    Roman ruins and riverside views

    by Sjalen Written Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: I would see Porta Nigra. We came off-season so there were no boat trips but a trip along the Moselle is something I will definately do next time. Also, if you're there in season, go wine tasting in the villages.

    Fondest memory: All of it! From taxi drivers to restaurant staff, everyone was very friendly.

    Favorite thing: Go to the Porta Nigra A Roman port from the second century. It is the only big part of the wall surrounding the ancient city wich has survived.
    Another part is the Arena /amphitheatre, which was admitted in the later build wall, and wich was also used as a port to the city

    Favorite thing: The old roman arena or Amphitheatre
    Beyond the medieval city wall lies the Roman Amphitheater. Here were conducted cruel combats of animals and gladiators, popular public entertainment.
    The Arena is build in the year 100, on the tribunes 20.000 people could watch the games.
    The arena itself is surrounded by a protecting wall with openings for animal cages. The stone seats above were dismantled in the 13th century.
    The Amphitheater is used for occasional open-air concerts today.
    Underneath the arena is a cellar where, in Roman times, prisoners sentenced to death were kept. You can visit this underground room

    Favorite thing: see the Krahnenviertel (Old Cranes)

    On the banks of the Moselle, you can view two monuments of technology of the past: two loading cranes. The cranes have moveable roofs which move atop mighty round substructures. Inside each is an enormous treadmill which was driven by human muscle power to move the pulleys.

    The northerly crane was built in 1413, and the one nearer to the Roman Bridge was built in 1774.

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: Trier seems to be the oldest city of Germany. And you feel the history everywhere. When I was a teenager, I was always excited when I read in the paper about works at Trier, and the workers found again some coins or some parts of roman stuff when building a house or a street.

    Ruines of the old Roman baths

    Favorite thing: See the Roman buildings and remainders of that time. Trier has many, but the highlights are the Amphy-theatre, the Thermae and the Porta Nigra.
