This is definitely a must to see if you're in the city of Trier. I would not go out of my way just to see this however. It is impressive because of its age and size. It's impressive because of the Roman history. The building itself I cannot say is all that spectacular. Perhaps one it was the emperors throne... More

You might be excused to believe this is just another building, but it actually is a 1700 years old Roman throne room, the core of the "palatium" or the palace of the emperors in Treviri. From here Constantine ruled for some time these lands. It is a sight not to be missed. Pity inside there is no explanation of its... More

Effectively it's a huge empty rectangular building. Apart from sheer size nothing special to look at from decorations or architecture perspective.

Unfortunately we could not enter due to building activities, but just standing outside in front this massive building is impressive. A giant built in roman times. How did they do it?

Wow. also known as Konstantin Basilika. I don't know where the reviewer got the information about the total destruction... I don't find any evidence of that anywhere. The roof is replica and the plaster has been stripped away as well as some towers that were added to supplement the vanity of a medieval archbishop, but the walls are original -... More

This is a simple building with an intersting and varied history but come in just to see the amazing Roman bricks that have held ths place up for... More

As you enter this church, you are immediately struck by the enormity of the open internal space. I found myself looking up in bewilderment, asking "how did they do it"? Although they are currently renovating to add a pipe organ, the church is open and there are many posters explaining its history. It's worth a stop to look up and... More

This church is undergoing interior repair and refinement. The explanatory displays gave evidence that the congregation understood its error in standing by Hitler in WWII and wanted to become more inclusive and forgiving haven for Christians.
