In comparison with the Colosseum in Rome and the amphithetre in Side, Turkey, this is 'small fry' ! Nevertheless, it is old and is an historic site in Trier.

When you are in Trier this amphitheater is one of the places to visit to visualise the Roman culture which existed on these grounds more than 2000 years ago.

I loved the amphitheater. I could just imagine the gladiator fights. The tour of the basement and the rooms is impressive too. I wish it was a guided tour though that would have been even better.

Having been to multiple amphitheaters, from Greece, to Bulgaria, to Italy, I can say this is an excellent one with many key aspects including being complete, viewable, and with an intact, explorable underground. My adult daughter had not seen one and was taken by all of this one. There are also some side attractions like a gladiator exercising in the... More

This is a well maintained, well preserved site. Its scale is the first thing that strikes you as you walk in. You can get beneath the arena to see the tunnels and cells below.

This is a well preserved Roman site and entry is cheap. It is worth a visit along with the other surrounding Roman buildings when passing Trier

I had look round a few years and I went again last week it was very interesting. It is a bit difficult to imagine how things were when the Romans were here

No one will visit this attraction without feeling the total dispair of the poor creatures road to death in order to amuse the audience. The lack of feeling for others must have been evident - ore else no one could have watched these fights. It is nice to know that music was plaid in concerts, actors performed and it at... More
