The name refers to the Dominican monastery of St. Katharina, which is located in the immediate vicinity. The monastery was moved from Petrisberg to the banks of the Moselle in 1288 when Ordulph von Ören donated the area to the nuns . It has had the name since 1883; however, from 1862 it was already called Katharinenquai. Historically, the street was also called Moselquai
Particularly noteworthy among the buildings are the old customs house and the Katharinentor , which belongs to the complex . The old customs house was built around 1815 as the gatehouse of the Katharinentor and is a one-and-a-half-storey classicist hipped roof building. However, it lost its importance as a customs house in 1831 when the new main customs office was completed. From 1875 the customs office and Katharinentor were no longer used after the city wall was torn down. Today it is the residence of the Trier Carnival Association KG Heuschreck , which acquired it in 1982 for 290,000 DM and has officially used it as a club house since June 30, 1984.
The Katharinentor was one of the Trier city gates and was located on today's Katharinenufer. Instead of the medieval city gate, a new building was built in 1815. In 1861 Trier still had eight gates, including the Zurlaubener or Katharinentor. Much of the city wall was demolished just a few decades later.
