What Can You Expect from Expat Life in Trier?

The city of Trier is one of Germany's most architecturally interesting places, with Roman baths and basilicas sharing space with Gothic cathedrals and baroque churches.

Student life is one of the main economic drivers of the city, alongside tourism and wine production. Many expats also choose to live in Trier and commute to Luxembourg, due to its close proximity to the grand duchy. With a healthy retail and services economy offering a diverse range of entertainments and attractions, plus the beautiful surroundings of the Mosel wine region, it's not difficult to understand why Trier is considered one of Germany's hidden gems.
