Our second day of touristing for Easter break was in Trier. The word to describe Trier best is old. It was a Roman settlement, and there are many remnants of the Romans still there. We saw the Kaiserthermen from the 3-5th century, the city library with the first copy of the Gutenberg bible, plus many handwritten manuscripts dating back to the 700s, the oldest Cathedral in Germany, which was started in the 3rd century, and the Porta Nigra city gate from 170. We also saw the Benediktinerabtei which holds the bones of St. Matthew.
