We have been to Trier, Germany from way back in our European escapes even before living in France. Our nostalgic favorite German City , and the oldest indeed, However, looking at the architecture of the monument we came into it as we were nicely told worth to look into it. Of course, not seeing them all, but some and will have the will to come back and look for them more carefully. You like museums? This one is worth the detour in lovely Trier! Let met update you a bit about the City museum or Stadtsmuseum of Trier.  Hope you enjoy it as I.


The City museum has a model of the medieval City , in German is the Stadtmuseum Simeonstiff.  The City Museum shows art and cultural treasures from the Middle Ages to well into the 21C. The exhibition is founded on a collection of valuable donations made by well-known citizens of the city. The artefacts on display are divided into a variety of sections, including paintings, sculptures, arts and crafts, Coptic textiles, furniture and small Oriental plastic art forms. The focal point of the permanent exhibition revolves around the history of the city of Trier. Regularly changing special exhibitions are dedicated to Trier’s native artists or to topics associated with the city. The collection is housed in the Roman building of the Collegiate of St. Simeon, which originates from the 11C and is directly adjacent to the Porta Nigra.  Also ,worthy of note is the building itself, which boasts one of the oldest and rarely preserved two-story cloisters.

The approximately 900 objects in the collection exhibition can be seen on 1000 m² of exhibition space. Models, interactive areas and a broad multimedia range of around 40 media presentations in the form of films, picture sequences and listening stations complete the visit. Visitors can discover the collection with free audio guides in different languages or organize a rally for children.
