The town of Trier
was once known as Roma secunda or the ‘second Rome’. In the Oldest City of Germany you find a lot of antique buildings and
testimonies of different epochs, which are a part of the UNESCO World Heritage
and which give Trier a unique character. From here, the
route leads south through the Hunsrück nature park into the Saarland.
This former industrial region of iron and steel production is now one of
Germany’s greenest federal states. Discover its
past at the cathedral-like Völklingen Ironworks.
Your journey to the next stopping point of Lorsch runs through the Palatinate Forest to the south.
At this juncture, the route continues along the Rhine towards its upper reaches and the cathedral town of Speyer with its imperial heritage.
The final stop, Maulbronn
Monastery, lies in the heart of the Swabian wine region. A haven of
tranquillity, it is tucked away amid the beautiful Kraichgau-
Stromberg countryside, which is blessed with
vineyards, meadows and leafy forests as well as many places of interest.
