Trier – Fleischstraße

The city’s Butcher Street is easy to locate, since they’ve put a big sign up at the entrance, and it’s one of the most historic streets in Trier. It was pedestrianised in 1977 and was named after the meat stalls which were operated along here by butchers in the medieval period.

Many of the historic buildings along here were though unfortunately destroyed during the Second World War. This included the property at number 14, a fifteenth century property which had partially rebuilt in the eighteenth century and which was then used as a school and courts.
