The white building along Dietrichstrasse and the Main Market of Tier is called Steipe. It was constructed in the mid-15th century for entertaining the town’s visiting dignitaries. Perched above the outdoor restaurant are reproduced sculptures of three Apostles and St. Helena. The neighbor on the left is the Red House, a 17th century baker’s guild. An inscription claims the city of Trier is 1,300 years older than Rome.
