About Cruising to Trier

While Trier is not directly located on the coast, it is situated along the Moselle River, which is navigable for river cruises. River cruises on the Moselle typically connect various cities and towns along the river, including Trier. If you're looking for a great was to tour the country, planning a cruise to Germany is an excellent option.

Founded by the Roman emperor Augustus around 16 BC, Trier is now the oldest city in Germany. Consequently, it has more Roman architectural relics than anywhere else in Germany and these are the oldest Roman ruins outside of Rome. The ruins, combined with the Cathedral of St. Peter and the Church of Our Lady in Trier, earned a designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1986. The city's center is easily walkable with many of its main attractions within a 20-minute stroll of each other.

Outside of its Roman origins, Trier is also known as the birthplace of Karl Marx and you can visit the house in which he was born to learn more about his life and his Communist Manifesto.

Found on just about any river cruise itinerary that sails the Moselle River, Trier is also a thriving university city with lots of options for dining and shopping.

Trier Cruise Reviews
Loved seeing the very old Roman church and the roman ruin, Porta Nigra. The Old Town is very lively. Read More

I had no idea that this oldest city in Germany was once the capitol of the Holy Roman Empire.Read More

The city tour took in all the sites, the Roman church, other more modern cathedrals, Porte Nigra. There was too much time in the city center due to the variability of the ships schedule through the locks. This tripRead More

Lovely old town, also a bit warm when we were there, but plenty of cafes and bars. Well worth the visit. Pity that we were moored in a commercial dock 20 miles or so from the city.Read More
