For some reason, German language books for foreign students are obsessed with Trier. In all the dialogues I could remember, there was a student from Trier. “What´s up with this place?”, I used to ask my teacher. He said it was a popular city with an University dating from the 15th century. Additionally, he said it was the birthplace of Karl Marx. Sounded promising!
It took me a few years to actually set foot in Trier, but I wasn´t disappointed. If you want to take a look at some local attractions to decide if Trier will make it into your traveling plans, press play on the video below! It´s a tour around Trier in less than 2 minutes!
