The Dom of Trier is quite astonishing - it is vast in scale, and yet is surprisingly cosy. The great treasure of the Cathedral the the 'Holy Robe' - the relic of the seamless garment that Jesus wore before his crucifixion. This is given the architectural pride of place above the sanctuary. Well worth a visit - and contrary to... More

Great place overall. I visit Cathedral most of the time, when I come to a new town/city and this one is worth the visit for sure. Not only the overall structure is magnificent, but it also creates the atmosphere appropriate for the prayer, if you are a believer. The glasses by Chagall are great and there lost of other worthy...

It is an impressive building but they wanted 4.50 euro to get in, and that's when it stops for me. Historic buildings are always nice to see. In short we did not see the inside. In short, just another beautiful historical building

The cathedral is really beautiful, really worth visit.Do not miss it. No fee to enter. Info for people traveling by car I left my car on the road Balduinstrasse for few hours, which is just 5 minutes walk to the cathedral. Porta Nigra close by too and the market in colorful town

The contrast between the Cathedral and the Basilic is very interesting. On one side, the roman catholic cathedral is well decorated with sculptures, paintings, ... while the protestant basilica is so strict.

So we're walking toward the town square from the Porta Nigra and we see a lovely church tower, thinking "that must be the big church in town" and we get so we're right in front of the rathaus (on our right) reading from the guidebook (Rick Steves) a very interesting "how Trier came to be" and then we look to...

Marvelous old cathedral, parts of which go back to Roman times. Several archetectual styles represented. We attended Mass on a religious holy day.

One of the oldest church in one of the oldest city of Germany. It helps if you read about it first or better yet get a local guide to give you a tour.

The folks in Trier have been very proud of their cathedral for hundreds of years. It is quite an architectural feat.
