Old crane is located at the Mosel riverbank just a few steps from the younger crane, not too far from Roman Bridge. It is a beautiful industrial building, most probably not worth a separate trip but definitely interesting enough to visit once in Trier. It...More

The crane dates back to the 15th century. There is nothing particular about it. However, its presence among the beautiful bank side of the Mosel is an addition that adds to the charm of the whole area. You can see it easily if you simply...More
