The Deutschherrenhof was a highlight of our stay in Trier. The customer service was excellent as was the breakfast buffet which was a part of the price. It is a three block walk to the center of Trier and a walker would pass by two groceries (one in the basement of a big department store) on the way to the town center, markt platz, historic sites, museums, and shopping. Do not, if at all possible, arrive in Trier late Saturday afternoon for a three or four day stay: everything closes (for the most part), except restaurants, until Tuesday morning. There is no need to suffer our ignorance.
