This place is a unique composition of old town houses just next to the Cathedral. I walked the place early in the morning (6:30 a.m.) on beautiful summer day. It is worth to get up early and enjoy the quiteness of the place with no crowds and just the church bells ringing.

Visiting any of these towns in Germany...stopping at the outdoor market is always a must even if you don't buy anything. You can learn much about the area by the goods that are sold there.

Great for a stroll eating pretzels or gelato on a sunny day. You can find good local foods and flowers from the vendors. Christmas market is a must see!!!

This old town square is on par with some of the greats around Europe. Old school architecture and new world shopping. You can always count on something going on from wine tasting, Christmas markets or just the run of the mill farmers market.

We visited this market for the third year running. We have been visiting German Christmas markets for many years and find them all very similar, but have returned to trier again for the third year running because it is easy to get to and there is a nice atmosphere. There are plenty of good restaurants and hotels within easy walking... More

I believe it is one of the best Xmas Markets. Lots of local food, great wine to keep you warm, many occasions to buy nice Christmad decorations . I liked house of Angela baking cakes , which is near Dom.
