“Strolling along the Mosel”
Review of Alter Moselkran

Alter Moselkran
Ranked #35 of 177 things to do in Trier
Attraction details
Reviewed 18 June 2016

Quiet close to the old roman bridge one can see the two old Mosel-cranes. The surroundings are very beautiful: you are walking on the bank of the river and can enjoy the nice sights of the bridge and barges sailing by. Historical value of this old cranes might be rather limited but through the small windows one can see the treadmill in which people once walked to make the crane move and work.

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 walk along the trail beside the river.

Its an old crane, a bit worn down and would need some information outside about what it is. But the walk beside the river is beautiful!

This one, in close viscinity of the younger crane, is the oldest crane in Trier, located at the Moselle enbankment and very close to the Roman bridge. In 1413 "Lieffgins son", tenant of the floating wooden crane in Trier, received the permission of Archbishop Werner von Falkenstein to build a land crane. According to the building code he was obliged to build a crane in front of the Johannispforte.
