Malls should do more than just offer shopping facilities under one roof. Ideally, they should be a place where people can linger, a marketplace where residents can meet and share the latest news. These characteristics make shopping centers exciting new centers of activity in the city.
And old Roman city with contemporary flair – The Porta Nigra is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the symbol of the city of Trier. Built around 180 AD, it is the best preserved Roman city gate north of the Alps. But Trier is an exciting destination for other reasons as well: every year millions of visitors come to the city to attend cultural events and go shopping.
In addition to being an old Roman town, Trier is Germany’s oldest city. Commerce and trade have a history here that dates back over 2,000 years. The city has a retail centrality index of 231, making it a leading German retail location. »Trier Galerie« was built by TRIGON Immobilien and opened in 2008.
The modern mall area – covered with a glass roof – has a delightful at-mosphere that invites visitors to stop, take a break and enjoy the surroundings. Colorful accents and fine-quality building materials character-ize the interior architecture,
giving a new quality to shopping in Trier. On three floors flooded with natural daylight, shops like Fink, Kult, S. Oliv-er, Thalia and Zara set the standard for the latest shopping trends.
The Trier Galerie is being built in the heart of Trier, in the highly popular Fleischstrasse, which is part of a large pedestrian zone.
Shoppers will have 950 customer parking spots at their disposal in the adjacent city car park. The car park is directly linked to the Trier Galerie via a tunnel and a pedestrian bridge.
The Trier Galerie is located at a prime location in the center of town with direct access to the Fleischstrasse pedestrian zone and the Kornmarkt. It can be reached by car via the Böhmerstrasse entrance and Zuckerbergstrasse,
