Porta Nigra in Trier, Germany

Trier, Germany is the oldest city in Germany!

A few weeks ago, we decided it was time to go on our first family adventure here in Germany. With Trier being the oldest city, and only an hour from our current house…it was a no brainer! The image above is the Porta Nigra. Isn’t it amazing!! It was built in 170 AD…let that soak in…its over 2000 years old! Standing beside this amazing structure was unreal! To witness the craftsmanship is unlike anything I’ve ever seen! As you can see in the images below, we went into the structure and looked around.

Next we went to Saint Peter’s Cathedral. It was such a stunning place inside and out! Silence was required inside the church…it was such a surreal feeling to be inside such an spiritual place with so many others yet feel like you’re the only on there. As you’ll see in one of the images below, this cathedral houses the Holy Robe! (In case you’re not aware, that means that Jesus himself wore that robe!) Sadly you cannot really see anything, but knowing it was behind the glass was still pretty cool.

We really enjoyed Trier, its sites, and its gelato (not pictured, because…we ate it). It hasn’t really become real yet that I get to show my children the world while we live in Germany…and I get to document EVERYTHING along the way!

Keep watching for another post on our next family adventure!!!
