Interpretive panel about St. Martin Holy Way.

Photographed 14 August 2023.

The Holy Way of St. Martin through the diocese of Trier
The European Cultural Trail of St. Martin of Tours, the "Via Sancti Martini", connects the birthplace of St. Martin, Szombathely in Hungary, with his burial place in Tours in France.
Coming from Worms, the "via Treverorum" leads from the mouth of the Nahe near Bingen to the mouth of the Sauer near Wasserbillig through the diocese of Trier. This hiking and pilgrimage route visits St. Martin's churches, depictions of St. Martin, but also places where people live socially in the spirit of St. Martin -are or were charitable.
It is not specifically signposted, but runs along well-known hiking trails in the Hunsrück and Moselle valleys, see: www.martinuswege.eu
Mural in the Church of St. Martin in Schweich
The Roman soldier Martin cut up his coat and gave half to a cold beggar. He is laughed at as a do-gooder by eyewitnesses. At night in a dream he sees Jesus Christ – wearing the half of his coat he had given away! – who approves of his behavior: “Martin, not yet baptized, has clothed me with his cloak.” Saint Martin is baptized after this encounter with Christ and then leaves the army before he is in danger of killing an opponent in a battle.
The Martinusweg leads from Mertesdorf directly to Trier. If you take the "detour" (31 km) from Mertesdorf (= Martinsdorf) via Fell, Riol, Schweich to Trier-Pfalzel, you come to five interesting St. Martin's churches with different representations of St. Martin's and can get an impression of the Moselle valley with its wine growing since the days the Romans (see villa urbana in Longuich).

Dreikonigenhaus.

Photographed 17 August 2023.

Three Kings House is an early Gothic residential tower and was completed in 1231. It is also known as the House of the Three Magi or the House of the Three Kings. The name comes from a painting representing the Epiphany that hung in the building's interior. In 1680, Johann Cornet ran "The Three Kings Inn" in this building.

This imposing house features a stark white facade with gold embellishments. The house has ornate marble columns framing each window. Originally, the house was accessed through an upper level by a retractable ladder. This system provided safety in case of an attack. Trier probably had around ten such fortified houses, which were owned by influential and wealthy citizens.

The house was originally two separate front and back buildings, but the buildings are now connected with a staircase. Epiphany House has had several renovations throughout the centuries. The roof dates to 1696, and the building was renovated in 1938. An additional 1973 renovation sought to return the building to its original Medieval look. Today, the historic house hosts a cafe.
