About Porta Nigra, Trier

One of the most visited historical monuments in Trier, Porta Nigra stands impressive with its massive structure. It is a large city gate in Trier and is today the largest Roman city gate north of the Alps. The origin of its name in the Medieval Ages was due to its weathered dark colour of the stone. An unfinished project of its own time, the gate, nonetheless, was used for several centuries till the end of Roman era as an entrance to the town. Porta Nigra was designated as a World Heritage site in 1986. Its present appearance is the result of reconstruction done under the regime of Napoleon. The features of Porta Nigra are:

  • On the south side, you can see the remains of Roman Columns. They give an impression of the Roman Street which they must have served as originally.
  • An upper floor where the actors portray the character of a centurion, a Roman army officer, in full sartorial set up.
  • Stone blocks, of which the biggest weigh up to six metric tons.

Porta Nigra, Trier Reviews

  • The hotel is very good located nearby the Porta Nigra, it just takes a few footsteps to reach the city centre of Trier. The room was quite large and comfortable. The bed was large, too. But very uncomfortable to lie in. The mattress was too soft and as we had had a double bed it were two normal sized mattresses so there was a bad gap, that wasn't cosy. The bathroom was large and clean, too. It came with a bath tub and there was the next problem: when I wanted to have a shower in the morning there was less and less water pouring out, so it took quite a long time to get wet and then to get the soap off my body. Before my friend stepped into the shower, we called for the house technician and he could fix it. That is to say, it's ok, that might happen once. But the next morning it was the same all over again. There's a nice restaurant and bar, but wenn didn't eat there so I can't give a recommendation for it.

  • Love this hotel,location,room facilities.only hic up ...no fridge

  • Very nice hotel just across the street from the black gate (porta Negra). Restaurant prices were expensive for their breakfast.

  • Helpful desk made accommodation work after initial error in my reservation. Rooms are clean, well appointed. Amazing view of Porta Nigra.

  • Hotel restaurant is beautiful, and the hotel is conveniently close to everything there is to see in Trier! Right across the street there is a castle!
