The city, which was called Augusta Treverorum in Roman times (Latin for “City of Augustus in the Land of the Treveri”), is called the oldest city in Germany with a foundation around 18 BC. At that time the city still belonged to the province Gallia Belgica (Belgium today). Today it is the fourth largest city in Rhineland-Palatinate and can adorn itself with numerous architectural monuments that are part of the UNESCO World Heritage. These include: Amphitheater, Barbarathermen, Kaiserthermen, Konstantinbasilika, Porta Nigra and Römerbrücke.
