I would strongly recommend doing this attraction with a tour guide. There is not much information if you do tour this on your own. This is a great family attraction... as alot is left to the imagination. The ruins are well preserved and you have freedom to stay as long as you like. Do not miss the underground area.

Although never used as baths, it is an amazing example of such. Lived being able to descend below the main level to walk through the maze of underground chambers and passageways.

When I visited the baths I couldn't believe how big the whole site was. Walking around the baths gives a full understanding of how they worked.

Great architecture. Those old Romans have been very clever and they had good engineers. Take your time looking around and go also underground. It is worth a visit.

This site should definitely be done with a tour guide. Many stories to be told and interesting facts. Standing at the remains, although on ground, you'd actually be beneath where the baths were to go. Once you travel underground you are where the servants did their work unseen to others. Well preserved and a must see.

Visited in Spring '04 (Jan 2013 is as late as TA will allow you to put a date). Worth checking out, especially if interested in Roman architecture and history. Much of the baths' understory is visible, so you can see how the building was laid out and roughly where they would heat the water, etc. Shame it's not intact, but... More

It is maybe a 20 minute walk from the tourist office next to the Roman Gate. Really interesting ruins. Further excavating is taking place on the sight. You can actually go around the area and under, into the tunnels.

Impressive site, showing clearly the architecture of Roman 'thermae'. Recommended for people or students, interested in ancient history. Otherwise this might not be accessible enough, too much 'labyrinth'.

From the top, the baths do not look like much...but go underground and you will have a much better sense of how the place might have felt in Roman times. Very well done...avoid school children if you can.

We walked to them from our hotel at The Park Plaza. Since I did a small train ride that took me around the city, this time my husband and I walked there. It was impressive, but nothing like the baths in Rome, or even the baths in Athens. It is amazing that in this small town of Trier this Roman... More
