Another wonderful historic cathedral marked off my list. This is not top five in Europe but very much impressive to visit. Very Romanesque and has a lot of history to tell. Especially for how north it is. Must see and visit.

Please allow a good amount of time to tour this magnificent building. The amount of detailed and beautiful carvings inside will blow your mind. The outside of the building is even more beautiful. A must see sight in Trier.

This cathedral,which is in the centre of Trier, is reputed to have been built during the Roman occupation. It is reputed to hold the original "Robe of Jesus" which he wore at the crucifixion.

The original building dates back to the 12th century, being Romanesque. This Romanesque origin can still be detected, but many additions and alterations inside spoiled it a a bit. I found the outside more impressive than the interior. However, the adjacent cloister is a gem.

Of course, this is one of the landmarks you have to visit while you are in Trier. It is not an overwhelming interior with gold everywhere, it is really a place for prayer. Always impressive to see what kind of craftmanship was around already many hundreds of years ago

The High Cathedral of Saint Peter in Trier is the oldest cathedral in the country and the largest church in Trier. It is not a dark durch, but rather flooded by light. Woderful!

This cathedral has been standing since the third century. It is a combination of Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque architecture. It is the oldest bishop's church in Germany. This cathedral is considered a double church with its other section known as the Church of Our Lady. There are a couple of crypts. We did not have a lot of time here... More

Visited here today and had a very good experience in the cathedral with the service being said and the staff being very helpful. The vintage is clearly visible.

Services were being held, so didn't get to walk around as much as we'd liked. The quiet was awesome.

St Peter's Cathedral is very impressive. You will be created with a structure that is composed of many pieces from different times. You will be able to see how thief Cathedral developed and grew overtime. Very impressive and great to study for those who love history. The St Peters cloak is very neat to see. While I am not Catholic,... More
