It was an incredible witness of the Roman empire in Trier. It is the only still standing basilica in the world. A really huge room where the Emperor hosted its guests.

This huge hall is a reminder of the power of Rome. Renovated to be able to be used now. Free entrance!

This was the reason we came to Trier and unintentionally saw it in a great way - illuminated by night - and realising just how big it was - and Roman. Inside, it feels less grand, until one realises that each ceiling coffer is the...More

The most complete Roman building I've seen. Gives a real insight into how impressive these Roman palaces must have been. Superb Roman brickwork that is 1700 years old... how many modern brick built structures will last that long?

This was interesting to see. We did not spend a great deal of time at this site. It is very close/with in walking distance to many of the other famous sites of the city.

This church seems to be a contemporary building and is in fact the last remain of Constantins imperial palace. (the city of Trier has been a capital of the roman empire for a short while). It lacks all the marble decoration it certainly used to...More

Half day trip to Trier from Luxembourg City - enough time? (4 Replies)
Hello I am seriously considering visiting Trier while I'm in Luxembourg. I will be in Luxembourg for 2 days but happy to cut a half-day out to visit Trier. Will this be enough time for both places or should I just focus on one place? Have visited Tallinn, Gdansk and covered most of the main sites of the old in 4-5 hours I assume this would be the same? I would like to visit the Cathedral, Marx house, Potra Nigra, Aula Palatina and walk around the town centre and be able to get a meal...More

Perfectly possible, the central area is reasonably compact and not that far from the railway station. You may well find that you have enough time to visit some shops too. We often call in for a few hours when we are driving to somewhere else. For a meal, there are plenty of restaurants but we particularly like the Weinstube Kesselstatt which is just opposite the cathedral. It is just a bit quirky, you go in, find yourself a seat and then go to the bar to order (but they bring the food to...More
