Beautiful! My parents were married here in 1958😊 Not located on the area where tourists usually are. You can ask or look on the map to find it.

This Baroque church is a hidden gem in Trier. Once one gets lost in the old town after Porta Nigra, one tends to forget that the rest of the city harbors other attractions. One these great attractions is this church. The interior is impressive with nice paintings even on the ceiling and exterior is really impressive. The yellow colour is... More

If you like baroque churches this one is not to be missed: one of the most beautiful I have seen in Germany! Enjoy the general impression and allow your eyes and spirit to wander around these flying shapes and colors. Do not miss the angel literally flying below the ceiling. A masterpiece of Baltazar Neumann. It is a bit away... More

It's a bit outside of the city center where all sights are located but it the walk several blocks from Porta Nigra is worth it.

This flamboyantly baroque church is tucked away in a small non-descript lane in Trier. Don't miss it though as its really beautiful. Its named in honour of St. Paulinus of Trier and although he had been exiled from the city, his remains were brought back. However, if you are squeamish about huge caches of bones, don't go to the crypt.... More

We stumbled on St Pauls while out walking. What a wonderful ‘find’ … the most amazing ceiling paintings … a jaw-dropping moment when you walk in. It’s not on the ‘Tourist route’ but well worth searching for. About a 10 min walk from the Porta Nigra.

The paintings on the ceiling are great and heavily framed with plaster work and cherubs on the pilasters. No guidebook in any language, but definitely the best views are inside. The Alter is gilt and very high Baroque in style and it's a very light church. It has concerts part of the year, unfortunately we did not hear one. It... More

We did not visit the interior of this church as it was not situated in the corner we resided in, but seen from pix it must be worthwhile. I took this pix from the Fort Konstatntin.
