Trier is the oldest city in Germany. The city was demonstrably founded in 16 BC by the Romans, but probably several centuries earlier by the Celts. There are the remains of a Roman bath and the cathedral, which is the oldest German church. The most famous native is the philosopher and revolutionary Karl Marx.

Black Gate

The historical part of the city is opened on the north side by the Roman gate Porta Nigra from the end of the 2nd century, which has been preserved as the only one of the original four city gates.
