On our trip back from Luxembourg we took a several hour detour in the town of Trier. Trier is Germany's oldest city and lies at the head of the scenic Mosel Valley. Founded by Augustus in 16 B.C., Trier was a Roman town called Augusta Treverorum for 400 years.

We picked up picnic supplies in Trier so we could enjoy a meal on the train back to Dusseldrof.

Friday is our last day to tour around before Saturday's run. We are headed out to Bonn and a train ride along the Rhein River.

Pictures later - marathon less than 24 hous away!
