Schiller’s Favorite Wine Taverns in Trier, Germany
Trier sits on the banks of the Mosel River and is the oldest city in Germany. In Roman times it was the largest city north of the Alps, and for some years it even became an imperial city. This 2000 year old city is a treasure trove of Roman and German history, and pagan and Christian culture. There is so much to see in Trier, but the famous landmarks from Roman times are a must: the Porta Nigra, the amphitheatre, and the imperial thermal baths. The most eminent citizen of Trier in modern times was Karl Marx, who was born and raised here.

Schiller’s Favorite Wine Taverns
Very nice, traditional wine tavern with a large wine list focusing on the Mosel Saar Ruwer region, but also covering other wine areas, including France, Italy and Luxembourg. Many wines by the glass. All wines in the list are to go or to consume in the tavern for an additional Euro 4.50.
The local food is good and the ambience is very nice. In the summer, one can sit outside on a little terrace.
Brueckenstr. 7, opposite to the Karl Marx Haus
Weinstube Kesselstatt in the Palais Kesselstatt, with an idyllic courtyard. Only Weingut von Kesselstatt wines, by the glass and by the bottle. Local food. Self-service – for every glass you have to go back to the counter and pay.
From the outside this look like a charming old wine cellar. Inside the building seems more modern, but has good decor with wooden tables/chairs, a huge wine press, metal rails.
First documented in 1349, the Kesselstadt estate today cultivates 90 acres of vineyard land, consecrated exclusively to Riesling. This winery is unique because the vineyards are equally divided among the three river valleys that form the Mosel appellation: the Mosel River valley itself, and the valleys of its two contributories, the Saar and Ruwer Rivers. Between 1854 and 1889 four former monasteries of Saint Maximin and their vineyard holdings were purchased, two smaller ones in the Mosel valley and two bigger ones in the Saar and Ruwer valley, all four form today the Reichsgraf von Kesselstadt winery. Winemaking facilities and headquarters of the estate are today in Schloss Marienlay in Morscheid in the Ruwer valley.
Liebfrauenstraße 10, next to the Cathedral
Restaurant, Bar plus Lounge and Deli – a combination of a restaurant, a bar, a lounge and a deli, with a large courtyard. Focus on wines from the Mosel, Saar and Ruwer region.
Michelin: Not all of Becker's restaurants are to be found in Trier's Olewig district. This trendy little establishment is situated in the city centre and has proved a great success since it opened. Start with a contemporary meal from the open kitchen and move on to a cocktail in the bar or the interior courtyard. In addition, Daily - open all day - sells wine, cheese and meats, as well as other fine foods and coffee.
Fleischstraße 59 - Posthof am Kornmarkt
Client: Wine shop and bistro with the biggest assortment of regional Riesling wines in the entire town of Trier. 110 types are waiting for you guys. Beside the wine shop a very good place to hang out and enjoy small and fresh cooked snacks. We like!
Weinwirtschaft Friedrich Wilhelm
Traditional wine tavern.
In April of this year, the 1 star Michelin Chef Alexander Oos and his wife Daniela Oos took over the former restaurant Cumvino an der Weberbach, which they named Weinwirtschaft Friedrich Wilhelm. The wines are all from the tenant: the Bischöfliche Güter und the Weingut Friedrich-Wilhelm-Gymnasium (founded in 1561), which belongs since 2004 to the Bischöflichen Priesterseminar.
