Full of atmosphere, even on a busy day. Magnificent central nave. They have separated out the gift shop, so one can enjoy the quiet all the better.

Love Trier and the Dom has the nails that that were used on Jesus Christ. It's a very serene atmosphere in the Dom. Highly recommended

This is an impressive building located right in the center of Trier dating back to the Emperor Constantine. One part you should not miss is the "Kreuzgang" which is accessible through a door located at the right hand side. This allows an incredible view of the back of the cathedral.

The Dom of Trier is quite astonishing - it is vast in scale, and yet is surprisingly cosy. The great treasure of the Cathedral the the 'Holy Robe' - the relic of the seamless garment that Jesus wore before his crucifixion. This is given the architectural pride of place above the sanctuary.

It is an impressive building but they wanted 4.50 euro to get in, and that's when it stops for me. Historic buildings are always nice to see. In short we did not see the inside. In short, just another beautiful historical building

The cathedral is really beautiful, really worth visit.Do not miss it. No fee to enter. Info for people traveling by car I left my car on the road Balduinstrasse for few hours, which is just 5 minutes walk to the cathedral. Porta Nigra close by too and the market in colorful town

The contrast between the Cathedral and the Basilic is very interesting. On one side, the roman catholic cathedral is well decorated with sculptures, paintings, ... while the protestant basilica is so strict.
