This is a truly grand building and like most other cathedrals was built, extended and rebuilt over centuries so that it contains examples of romanesque, gathic and baroque architecture. It is an indication of the importance of the Bishop of Trier in the middle ages. The square outside contains the houses built for church and lay dignataries over the years.

This cathedral has great history going back to the Roman days and has tremendous significance to Catholicism and the claim to the relics related to Christ. Catholic or not, it is a sight to behold.

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
