Located in the north- east between Saar and Moselle, Tawern district has a long history of settlement, as old as Roman era. Situated on the most important Roman road that offered a connection between Trier and the Roman Empire, the district served as a road station which offered rest stops to the trading travellers. The district came into highlight when an extensive Roman temple complex was excavated on the Metzenberg in 1986-87. The temple is dedicated to Mercury, the God of commerce and it is assumed that the traders must have used its altar to offer their sacrifices to this God. The temple has been partially-reconstructed today along with the restored edifices of original six temples, additional buildings for temple priests as well as other buildings. The area’s pavilion also exhibits a model of the Roman street settlement (vicus). You can make a day trip to the district from Trier or can stay over night as the place offers plenty of hotels and accommodations.
