Trier is located in the western part of Germany in the Rhineland-Palatinate state, close to the country's borders with Luxembourg.

The historic town is approximately 200 kilometres west of Frankfurt and about 50 kilometres east of Luxembourg City.

By plane

Luxembourg Airport (LUX) is just over the German border but is still the closest airport to Trier. It is a good option for those who are travelling by air within Europe.

  • Distance to Luxembourg Airport: 39km
  • Distance to Frankfurt Hahn Airport: 63km
  • Distance to Cologne-Bonn Airport: 155km
  • Distance to Frankfurt Airport: 164km

Frankfurt Hahn Airport is the somewhat notorious former military airport (because it was used as 'Frankfurt Airport' by certain low-cost carriers), although it works out relatively well for those wanting to get to Trier.

By train

The main train station ('Trier Hauptbahnhof') is within easy walking distance of the main sites and the accommodation (1km). Alternatively, you can use any of the bus lines 3, 7, 13, 18, 20 from Trier Hauptbahnhof to Porta Nigra, which is right around the corner of the venue. (But really, just walk, it's only 1 station.)

Trier is served by regional services along the Moselle valley and down to Luxembourg City. Regular regional express services connect Trier to Cologne and Mannheim. Two trains a day connect Luxembourg City with Düsseldorf. This service runs as a regional express between Trier and Koblenz and as an InterCity service for the rest of the route.

The German rail service offers a ticket (Rheinland-Pfalz-Ticket) which includes unlimited travel on regional trains and bus services in the Rhineland-Palatinate & Saarland (+Luxembourg, which has free public transport) for a day. The price is 28€ for 1 person +6€ per additional person (up to 5).

By car

The A64 motorway connects Trier with Luxembourg City. In the other direction, it connects with the main A1 motorway which heads south to Mannheim and north to Koblenz (and eventually through to Cologne and Bonn).

The venue contains a few parking spots. If you need one, please tell us in advance.
