Jubilant bells ringing through the town square invited us to Sunday mass. We are Catholic and we don't speak German but we attended anyway. It was a beautiful mess with a full choir and lots of pipe organ music, we were brought to tears by the beauty .

Very beautiful, stunning church with a beautiful cross garden and a lot to see. You could get to many places and get a nice, quiet feeling when sitting down and observing the ceiling or the altar. Lovely!

Oldest Bishop's cathedral in Germany initially built in the 4th century, but lots of restorations and additions over the centuries. The facade is Romanesque with semi-circular arches. According to tradition, the mother of Emperor Constantine, Helena, brought the tunic of Christ (the Holy Robe) to Trier Cathedral. It is not possible to view it, because it's encased by wooden and...

The beginnings of this cathedral go back to the time of early Christianity in Central Europe and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is impossible to convey the history that began in the early Middle Ages. It has been destroyed and rebuilt through the centuries. The current appearance followed reconstruction after a fire around 1717. It is a must... More

The Dom in Trier is outstanding. Due to it's age and beauty, it is my favorite of all of the churches I have seen on numerous visits to Germany. My group was fortunate to hear the organ play, too.

We enjoyed the Roman architecture in Trier and the Dom did not disappoint. We were not able to take a guided tour (fee) because we didn't have enough time, but walked around on our own for free in the short time we had. I would visit again so we could take the tour.

A gorgeous structure built on the foundations of Roman buildings of Augusta Treverorum in the 4th century. WOW! I don't care how long I live in Europe or how many churches, castles, etc that I see, I will never stop being in awe at the history behind them. If you're like me, please do yourself a favor and visit Trier.

Ok who knew the robe of Jesus Christ not only existed but was kept here in this Cathedral, not I! It is Trier's most famous religious relic. This Cathedral was magnificent a must see place if you are in Trier, Germany. Don't miss the adjoining chapel where I was lucky enough to hear a children's choir practicing, magical! The acoustics...

The Dom is incredible. There's a great pamphlet that has the history of the Dom and the city, it's worth the euro. Would highly recommend, even if you're not the religious type.
