One of the oldest cities in Germany: Trier

The debate about the oldest city in Germany remains unresolved. The different points of view are partly due to local patriotism and partly to different criteria being applied. Often the terms settlement and city are not clearly distinguished from one another. Among the candidates discussed for the oldest cities in Germany are Cologne, Kempten, Speyer and others, but also Trier. Trier was founded in 16 BC during the reign of the Roman Emperor Augustus. The city is not only known as one of the oldest in Germany, but also as an important center of ancient art and architecture, including the Porta Nigra, the best-preserved city gate in the ancient world.
