  1. This is the first time I have ever seen this page. Quite interesting, since I am from Trier and my sister and brother in Law own a winery in Longuich. I do like your discription of the pictures you show, wish you would show the Palast Garden and the Lutheran church. Do you know which one I am talking about. This one used to be a Roman palce where a famous Roman was crowned. I was confirmed there, my sisters where babtised there, my husband and I where married there, and 2 years ago came back on our 40th to renew our vowes. Please keep showing this lovely city, and give your comments. Thanks, will check back to see what you will show next. Thanks again.Now I am homesick. Evline

  3. Hi; I was born in Trier and lived for my first cople of years in Gilbert Strasse 17. Then my parents – and I – moved to Saarstrasse 68 where I lived until 1957. My maternal grandparents lived in Matthias Strasse but I don’t know the address. It was – perhaps still is – a wirtschaft which had a roman “Krug” displayed. Any pictures? That would be very much appreciated. Thanks and God bless, gunther.
