A rich history

Already in the time of the Celts there was a settlement in Neumagen-Dhron. By Celts is meant the people who spoke the Celtic language, they lived especially around the beginning of the era. How do we know that Neumagen-Dhron is the oldest wine town in Germany? A Roman stone wine ship has been found, part of the tomb of a wine merchant from 220 A.D.! The original can be seen today in Trier. However, in Neumagen-Dhron you can take a tour on the Moselle in a real replica, that's how you really feel history coming to life!

Unfortunately, little remains of the Roman finds. The summer residence of Emperor Constantine stood in the city, of which only the foundations have been preserved, together with some remains of the bathhouse in the basement. Unfortunately, the city wall is no longer to be admired either; it was given to Trier before it was known that it was a Roman specimen.

Near Neumagen-Dhron it is also highly recommended to visit Trier, Germany's oldest city, or Cochem, the city you can admire from the chairlift up to the nearby mountain. Both are at a maximum of an hour's drive from Neumagen-Dhron.
