Planning a trip to the beautiful and historic Trier? As a city founded by the Romans right near the Luxembourg border, Trier is an amazing place to hit if you’re looking to venture out of Luxembourg for a day. Check out some of our recommendations for your next quick trip to Trier.
If you’re looking for good food and drinks all day long, check out Villa Weißhaus. Located right on the Moselle River, you can go in the morning to enjoy a cup of coffee (try the macchiato espresso) and cakes. You can also go at night for a wonderful dinner with an amazing view of the city. We recommend the goat cheese salad, tomato mozzarella soup, and wiener schnitzel. Be sure to wash it all down with a German beer!

If you’re looking for a good, more relaxed place to eat lunch/dinner, check out Coyote Cafe. There is a large selection of items on their menus, including food and drinks. The cocktails were absolutely delicious including frozen strawberry daiquiris, Cosmopolitans, mojitos, and Long Islands (all of which were perfect for a fun dinner). We recommend the burgers and nachos to eat with your cocktails. The atmosphere is perfect for a night out to chat with friends and had a ton of outdoor seating. It is a super popular spot in such a great location, so we would suggest reserving a table on the weekends.

They offer a ton of appetizers to eat while you try a variety of wines, but we recommend reserving a spot before you go (especially on the weekends).
