Trier is the oldest city in Germany and a favourite among travellers, thanks to its Roman ruins and beautiful gothic architecture. On the banks of the Moselle River, it’s also close to some of the best wine-growing regions in the country. For your next trip, here’s our pick of the best hotels – bookable on Culture Trip.

Being the largest and oldest settlement on the Moselle River in Germany, Trier has a rich history. The Celts were the first to settle here, but the Romans officially founded the city in 16BCE. Those Roman origins are evident in the towering city gate, known as the Porta Nigra, as well as the amphitheatre and Imperial Baths. The city also has a charming, walkable Altstadt (old town), though many visitors jump on the Römer-Express tourist train to loop its pretty streets. To help plan your visit, here’s a rundown of the best places to stay in Trier.

Berghotel Kockelsberg

The Berghotel Kockelsberg sits on a hill overlooking Trier, surrounded by trees. It can trace its history back centuries, though the present-day building was built in the 19th century as a restaurant. Rooms are spacious and modern, split between the main building and an annexe. For an indulgent soaker tub and a rooftop terrace with spectacular views, opt for the junior suite.
