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.
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.

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.

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
At first we were hesitant about going to explore the Kaiserthermen. It looked as if a lot of the area was roped off, but we has some time before our train departed and decided to take a look anyway. Once we were through the main entrance area, the whole place opened up. I was actually alarmed at how accessible the... More
It's a small wonder that so much is left after such a long period. I found the information quite lacking. Entry is not expensive at all (€3), but you will not see much more on the site than what you can see for free from the street to the south. All you will miss is the short animation of building...
