While staying a few days with Marjos and Ton van Haaren of Der Eifeler Sonnenhof in Birresborn, I visited the charming city of Triër with them in the beginning of October 2013.

Laying on the banks of the Moselle for more than 2.000 years, Triër may be one of – or the oldest city in Germany. It is known for its well-preserved Roman and medieval buildings, but had I known that Triër was such a distinctly colourful and quiet city, I would have made this trip much earlier. This city is a must-see.

I was most impressed by the colourful decorations and fascinating statues on the painted façades on Hauptmarkt square.
