Wonderful history

Enjoy the vastness, the Roman history, and the fabulous crypt at the front, and the incredible wooden paneling at the back.

Well, if you have some additional free time at trier you might pass be to see the cathedral architecture, but what annoyed me is having lots of kiosks and activities in front of it which hinders the view

One of the oldest churches on the planet. Effectively architectural layer upon historical layer for nearly 2000 years, yet still retaining surprising continuity rather than hotchpotch. Almost grows organically from its vast flagged square. just a pleasure to scrutinise, and then you enter ... into one of the most visually interesting cathedrals this side of St Peters'. Again, diverse but... More

So fantastic to find this place! The best part is that you can walk hrough nearly the entire church without paying for entry and there is a LOT to see here. The interior is some of the most intricate and beautiful stonework I have ever seen. Everything is so old and so much attention to detail. This is really one... More

I think I spent over an hour soaking in this massive cathedral and all its beauty. Guides in different languages are available at the entrance for under 1€, so you learn a lot on your own. The Holy Robe Chapel was stunning. The organ was one of the most beautiful I have ever seen! Attached to the Cathedral is the... More

A very interesting historical structure. Elements of many different epochs from the third century AD until now. It is located just behind the old platz in Trier. They have a tour which we did not take. It is the oldest cathedral north of the Alps. It is also a World Cultural Heritage sight. They still have services on Sunday which... More

St. Peter's Cathedral in Trier provides a legacy of civilizations and architecture styles. One can see how the builders leveraged remnants of the Roman temples and combines gothic architecture. Trier stands alone in northern Europe as a unique treasure of Roman culture and earlier civilizations. There are many other noteworthy monuments, such as the Holocaust memorial commemorating the tragic loss... More
