Trier's history goes back well over 2000 years as an outpost of the Roman Empire. Still-standing ancient Roman structures, the St. Peter Cathedral, and the museums of archeology and history are some of Trier's most famous tourist attractions.
The University of Trier was founded in 1473, closed in 1796, and reopened in 1970.
Trier has a population of about 100,000 and is located in the Moselle river valley, with most of the city on the east bank of the Moselle river. The landscape around Trier is covered with forest and vineyards. Trier sits on the border with Luxembourg.
Located in the middle of Germany's wine-growing region, Trier also is home to companies in the food, textile, and precision engineering industries.
