Trier (part 3) - the "New" Town

Trier is more than just old Roman buildings. It has continued to develop since then and there are lots of more recent beautiful places in the town, although it might be a bit of a stretch to call them "new":

Here is the main town square with the lit-up church of St. Gangolph in the background.

The face of the Restaurant Zum Domstein, where we sampled some real Roman food as I described in an earlier post.

More buildings from the beautiful town square.

The Kurf├╝rstliche Palais (Electoral Palace) with the earlier shown Basilica in the background.

And finally a nice scene outside the Rheinisches Landesmuseum (State Museum of Rheinland). Very unusually for Germany you can even see palm trees amongst all the plants if you look closely.
