In Trier, the former Imperial residence, the Roman buildings still form part of the cityscape. Seven of these are on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage list: the Porta Nigra, the Kaiserthermen, the Amphitheater, the Barbarathermen, the Römerbrücke, the Konstantin-Basilika and the Igeler Säule, which lies a little way outside Trier. The Thermen am Viehmarkt excavations in the centre of Trier convey insights into the history of Trier as a city, which goes back around 2,000 years. The Roman Villa Otrang in the Eifel and the Klause Kastel, a Prussian funerary chapel high above the Saar, throw the history of the region from the Roman era up to the 19th century into sharp relief.
