While this is one of the oldest churches it wasn't anything extraordinary compared to all the other Dom's we've seen here in Europe. It was very cold inside the church as well. English brochures are available for €0,50 on the far right wall. It's free to walk around inside the church. The modern artwork over the doors was different. You... More

The Cathedral is huge, beautiful in style and layout with many ornate chapels and lovely stained glass windows. The Crypt is a must as is the Treasury room.

I visited the Dom in 2008; the memories of it has me wanting to come back and show my SO it. I am not religious by any means, but cathedrals have always been beautiful in my eye. Also the tomb stones are something to make note of.

This enormous Roman Catholic cathedral is largely Romanesque but displays a variety of other styles as well. The present building was completed in 1270 but stands on the ruins of various previous structures that once stood there and were destroyed The adjoining Basilica is equally impressive with superb stained glass windows.

It is a TOP 3 (in my opinion) landmark of Trier. Definitely impressible building with a rich history. Its style is different from all I have seen before.

I have been here many times, with friends, family, kids. It is home of Jesus' robe, make sure you don't miss it! The underground crypt is very nice too and the garden is nice in the summer. Kids can appreciate the art and they like to light a prayer candle.
