Trier // Trèves

Welcome to my hometown, Trier/Germany!
It´s hard to take Streetstyle-pics over here....
But may I tell you: the STREETS, yea the streets AND buildings, they have style.
Going for a walk over here is like traveling through history.


According to the Gesta Treverorum, the city was founded by Trebeta, an Assyrian prince, centuries before ancient Rome. The Roman Empire subdued the Treveri in the 1st century BC and established Augusta Treverorum (Lit: August (Regal, noble) [City] of the Treveri) in 30 BC. The name is likely to be taken from the title Augustus held by the Princeps or head of state at the time, Augustus Caesar. The city later became the capital of the Roman province of Gallia Belgica, as well as the Roman prefecture of Gaul. The Porta Nigra counts among the Roman architecture of the city. A residence of the Western Roman Emperor, Roman Trier was the birthplace of Saint Ambrose. In 395 the Roman administration abandoned the city, leaving the locals to their own defense; this marked the end of the effective authority of the Empire in Gaul..

  2. That´s my hometown, Trier! I took all of them, except 1, 2 & 4 (shutterstock images).
    The buildings are: the Porta Nigra (roman city gate), cathedral, the roman bath, the long throne hall of Roman Emperor Constantine, inside the Church of Our Lady, a small street behind the cathedral, the entrance and the garden and cloister behind the cathedral and the Palace of Trier (descending order).
