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

Nice little cathedral situated in the centre of Trier worth a visit if you are in the area but there are better cathedrals out there.

This city has so much to see. From atop the hill above the city you can see how the city is nestled next to the Mosel river. The architecture is amazing dating back through time when the city was the western capital of the Roman Empire. The gardens are delightful and the city full of history. Great shopping and the...

We would have loved to visit the interior but could not get into the main church due to services that were taking place. We were still able to see the altar and the dome. It was completely understandable why we could not look at Jesus' robe, but we were disappointed as we may never return.

If you are a music lover, visit the Dom during Sunday mass and get a concert at the same time. During the Christmas market, there are booths right in front.

Stunning to stand quietly to enjoy and meditate the magnificence and grandeur of this Cathedral. Don't miss the Church treasure room. We did not like the fact that people were allowed to use their cameras and cell phones on the premises, it was most distracting when one wanted to enjoy the stillness.

We happened to make it just in time to see the Dom right before it was closing for the day (the mass was about to start). Really spectacular architecture; the feeling of toucing centuries' old history is enveloping. The mass was very touching, a lot of local and tourist folks stopped by that evening.

This building celebrates the fame of being the oldest cathedral in Germany. Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque styles are orchestrated and seem to produce great harmony together. St. Helen (Emperor Constantine's mother)'s skull is the well-known relic enshrined here. Also housed here is the holy tunic said to be the seamless robe of Jesus. In spite of hustle and bustle caused... More
