The basics

Trier is well-known for its Roman history, so you'll likely visit the Rhineland Museum on a private tour of the city’s highlights, which focus on the city’s important historical and architectural sights. Common sights that complement the Rhineland Museum include the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Trier Amphitheater; St. Peter’s Cathedral, one of the oldest churches in Germany; and St. Matthias Abbey, a Benedictine monastery famous for its Romanesque facade.

When to get there

The museum is usually open between Tuesdays and Sundays from mid-morning until late afternoon (it’s typically closed on Mondays). During public holidays, the museum might be closed, so it’s always best to check the schedule before visiting. Pricing and opening times can sometimes vary if a temporary exhibition is running. Generally, it’s best to get there during the week, in the mornings to avoid the rush of afternoon crowds.

Roman treasures at the Rhineland Museum

The Rhineland Museum has plenty of fascinating artifacts for those interested in learning about Trier’s Roman roots—when it was the city of Augusta Treverorum. Treasures include a large hoard of Roman gold; reconstructed Roman frescoes; a collection of sculpted grave monuments from a Roman army base; and Neumagen Wine Ship, believed to be a funeral monument of a wine merchant.
