The SAE 2011 will take place in Trier, the oldest city of Germany. The picturesque valley of the river Moselle with its flourishing vineyards gave already the Roman emperors a good reason to stay in Trier. The best known building of this age is the Porta Nigra (Black Gate). Even after its 2000 years of history, it is nowadays entirely intact and a place to visit.
However, Trier has much more to offer than just the Porta Nigra. Three roman termae, an ancient roman theatre, and many more places are worth the visit.
Not only friends of history are attracted to Trier. Its medieval buildings around the market places invite for coffee and the local gastronomy offers meals in a large culinary spectrum.
