Very impressive cathedral for an Archbishop who used to exercise a great deal of power in the Catholic Church. The church is well kept and there are various altars through out. Once in particular has the grim reaper, something I have never seen in a church. There is also a cloth that Jesus was supposed to have worn or have... More

I was thoroughly pressed with this cathedral. First the building itself is amazing and beautiful. However, beyond that I loved the blending of architectural styles over the centuries. From Romanesque through baroque and gothic. Truly an architectural history lesson. Yet all the styles have been blended beautifully.

It is one of the most impressive churches in Germany, St. Peter's Cathedral austere facade hides a sumptuous interior. The church is huge, and beautiful ornamented. It has an important relic, Jesus' robe. The complex also has a cluster, the treasury, and adjacent Gothic church. My favorite part was the blue ceiling next to the entrance (a sort of a... More

I've seen about 10 cathedrals across the area since moving here 2 months ago. Admittedly the one in Metz is the most impressive so far, but this was the oldest and it apparently houses a cloak or robe of some sort that was worn by or covered Jesus. Gonna have to read up on it, but recomend a visit either... More

I visited at different times of the day. There were areas that weren't open to the public when I visited fairly early in the morning, so visited again later to see them and am glad I did. It was an interesting cathedral and quite imposing.

This is a two churches concept The Dom and on one side the Church of our Lady. We began with the Church of our Lady but I think it will be better to go first into the Dom. You can see the Place where The Holy Tunic, the robe Jesus wore when he died is kept. The Dom has been... More

Nice little cathedral situated in the centre of Trier worth a visit if you are in the area but there are better cathedrals out there.

This city has so much to see. From atop the hill above the city you can see how the city is nestled next to the Mosel river. The architecture is amazing dating back through time when the city was the western capital of the Roman Empire. The gardens are delightful and the city full of history. Great shopping and the...

We would have loved to visit the interior but could not get into the main church due to services that were taking place. We were still able to see the altar and the dome. It was completely understandable why we could not look at Jesus' robe, but we were disappointed as we may never return.
