The modern and up-and-coming city of Konz is situated at the confluence of the Saar and Moselle and with its central location offers an ideal starting point for trips into the neighbouring countries of Germany-France-Luxembourg. Konz played an important role in Roman times due to the Saar Bridge on the Roman Trail and the Emperor’s residence.
Below what is now Kirchenhügel, the ruins of the once magnificent residence of the Roman Emperor Valentinian I (364-375) can be visited. The unique folklore and open-air museum Roscheider Hof invites visitors to a fascinating journey through time showcasing the 19th and 20th century. The museum shows the former rural daily life of the greater region and in addition to the permanent exhibitions, entire houses and farm buildings, furnished in accordance with their original use and kitted out with household effects.
Karthaus Abbey with its impressive baroque façade of red sandstone and cour d'honneur resembling a castle is now used as a centre for cultural events. Konz places great importance on the arts. The many artworks and sculptures are best explored on a guided city tour.
