In the middle of Mehring (on the right bank of the Mosel) a Roman villa has been partially reconstructed. Although it seems quite modest today, once it was one of the largest and most impressive villas in the region around Trier. The increasing wealth and agricultural success of the owners is evident in the various phases of the building. The once proud house fell victim to Germanic invaders like so many others and the ruins were apparently later occupied by Franks. The villa is not far from the cycle path and is a good stopping off point. There are guided tours from Easter to October on Sundays at 11.30 am or by arrangement.
