Trip Planner: Europe / Germany / Rhineland-Palatinate / Trier / Porta Nigra
Tour Porta Nigra, one of the most well-preserved Roman structures in Germany. That's amazing, given that it dates back to the second century. Built of large, gray, sandstone slabs, this is the largest Roman city gate north of the Alps. Admire the impressive architecture as you learn more about the area's Roman heritage. You can explore the interior of the gate before heading to the top to enjoy the city views. Jump back in time with an informational tour led by a Roman centurion-clad guide. Take the guesswork out of planning a Trier vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

I was there during my stay in Trier. An old ruined building located in the center of Trier, nice to see this place but nothing special

Beautiful piece of history. We did this with our three kids ages 5,3,1 years and they loved it even after having gone to the Roman bath ruins. The older two were able to walk the whole thing and I wore the baby. Lots of places for photos, not too crowded on the May weekend we went. There are many dining options right outside the building with lots of vendors and shopping. Highly recommend!
A Canadian Tourist Review: A ticket to go inside Porta Nigra is 4 Euros. This is the most iconic attraction in Trier. There is some cool architecture inside but I wouldn't say it is essential to go up to the top. The view is mainly just for the ground directly below. I think you can appreciate it just as much from the outside. It is a very cool piece of Roman architecture and well worth the visit!
