Pay the entrance fee, use the clean WC and let the kids roam. It's pretty self explanatory - Romans built baths, they are old, the facility never got used as baths (that's quite interesting) - but the kicker here is it's enclosed. The kids had the best time just running around and chasing each other through the tunnels. You can't... More

Great for kids who don't like museums, as it is outdoors and explorable by high energy children. Could benefit from more signs on site, though the brochure was helpful.

Trier (the oldest city in Germany) with it's origins in the Roman civilization, has several major monuments and sites preserved to display the Roman influence. The Imperial baths reside near the edge of town; however, the trip here is worth it, especially if you have young children. What you see in the pictures is the above ground structures and some...

These baths were never really finished. The maze of tunnels is fun to walk around in. If you like running ahead of your family, hiding and then jumping out to scare them, then this could be your place. Our 12 and 14 yr boy and girl both liked the structure.

The baths are excavated so that you can wander around underground. Adjacent to a lovely city park area with beautiful gardens.

These baths were very interesting because you kind of got to see history in action. The baths themselves were never finished and never actually used by the Roman as baths, but the structure was repurposed and used as part of the (medieval?) city wall and palace much later in history. When the building was destroyed in one of the World... More

Surprisingly interesting, despite a lack of signage. The underground passages are remarkably well preserved and the reconstructed (?) walls of the house from the Middle Ages are also noteworthy. It would have been good to have been on a tour.

The ruins are well preserved. Do not miss the underground areas it leaves a lot to the imagination as there is not much information given. You can stay as long as you like at the ruins. Makes a good day out

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.
