An absolute must for visitors in Trier, regardless if one is religious or not. It's a UNESCO World Heritage, one of the many of those in the city.

The High Cathedral of Saint Peter in Trier is an absolute must passing through the city. This Roman Catholic church has been preserved in excellent conditions. The oldest church of the country survived the test of time. This Roman monument is on the list of UNESCO World Heritage and definitely worth while visiting.

This is one of the better churches I have seen and as others have said it is an inspiring church, with a great deal to see. This church is in the centre literally yards away from the shops, so it would be a real shame not to visit.

I'm not a religious person but this was truly gorgeous! I'm so glad we decided to stop in to take look! I have never added the churches to our itinerary but thanks to this place, I may include them now!

Architecture, atmosphere, beauty. This historical monument, the excellent carvings, the pipe organ, the marble roof carvings and the chapel should not be missed - also see the adjoining church

Lovely building, worth a visit, can be busy with tour parties. Quite an impressive building inside and out.

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

A nice dom but to be fair there are bigger better cathedrals in smaller towns so it wouldnt be worth going just for this

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.
