Split into 3 sections the City consists of the upper, lower and new part. The golden lady is set high up a pillar and was part of a memorial to the dead of the First World War. She became the symbol of the city. During the second world war she was hidden prior to the German occupation and was lost for many years until found hidden during the building of a football stadium. Early fortifications were created in the cliff faces overlooking the river.

Walking into the Town there was time for exploration, some Apfel Strusal but not the Ice Cream Sundaes as the lady who knew the recipe had not arrived for work.
Oak Trees used in bridge building date the city to 17BC. The city wall was 8m high by 3m wide. Porta Negra was one of the City Gates. Later St Simon lived in Porta Negra and after he died it was extended upwards to become a church to celebrate him. In Napoleonic times Trier had more churches than Paris or London and Napoleon tore down many churches but left the Porta Negra believing it to be an early Gallic Fort. In Roman times Trier was one of the most important cities of the Roman Empire and one of largest in the world.
