Day Trip to Trier, Germany
Trier is known as Germany’s oldest city and it’s right at the border of Luxembourg. The kids are loving learning so much history over here in Europe,and so, of course, they loved the huge Roman Gate we encountered when we walked up to the downtown area of the city. It’s so impressive, and we ate lunch at the Hans Im Gluck right there with a view of the gate. Trier also has the oldest Christian church in Germany, Roman Baths, Constantine’s Throne Room, and a Roman amphitheater. It was a full day that ended with ice cream, of course.

This was to prevent thieves from breaking in.If we see a sign with Keller, we have to snap a photo.The oldest Christian church in Germany.White asparagus known as spargel is in season.
