Trier stellplatz is well sign posted as you come into the town. However, if in any doubt, head for the McDonalds and proceed to the lower part of the car park. When in the car park, bear left and under the road bridge. Trier is just over the border from Luxembourg, into Germany and makes for a good night stop or short stay. There is one campsite in the town, but this is closed in the low season. However, motorhomers can make use of the stellplatz, noting that signs clearly prohibit caravans and tents. Entrance to the Trier stellplatz is via automatic barrier. Upon arrival, push a button and a plastic card will be dispensed. After taking the card, the carrier will raise.

Services available at the Trier Stellplatz
The Trier Stellplatz is very much a “pay as you go service”, with a night stop costing just over nine euro per motorhome. From there on, you can add extras as you need them. For example a shower costs 1.50 euro. Fresh water is available at ten cents for ten litres. Electricity costs a whopping 70 cents per kilowatt. Let’s put that into perspective – a 100 watt fridge freezer would function for about ten hours whilst a three kilowatt Alde boiler would operate for twenty minutes. Payment for services is made by the plastic card. The plastic card has to be taken to the pay station, and once the card is inserted into the machine, you add “credit”. Noteworthy of a mention, you can “add credit” by cash only, no cards.
In theory, a night stop, with a couple of showers and a bit of electric will easily cost 20 euro or so. As a result, this particularly stellplatz does not offer the very best in value for money. However is does offer convenience and location. There is an office/reception on site, but this was not manned when we visited. Also, there should be wifi at the Trier stellplatz, but this was not functioning.
The “pitching” area is slightly sloping, but nothing too severe. Probably would not visit again as this particular stellplatz is not the easiest to use and potentially could be costly. This link will give you a bit more information about parking in Trier.
