Remains St. Maximin's Abbey

The St. Maximin's Abbey was founded in the 4th Century. From 1802, the abbey complex was used as barracks, prison and school. The complex was totally destroyed during the Second World War except for the freestanding gateway. Nowadays, a school is standing on the former abbey site.

The gateway contains damage from the fighting for Trier in 1945.
