Germany: Trier

On Tuesday I got four postcards: one from Germany, one from China, one from Finland and one from Japan.

The card from Germany shows various views of Trier. According to the legend Trier was already founded in 2050 BC and is thus considered to be the oldest city in Germany. Between 286 and 392 it was a residence of the Western Roman emperors and in the 3th century it became the seat of the first German diocese. Since 1986 are the Roman Monuments and the Cathedral of St Peter and Church of Our Lady in Trier on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
