This is a reverential space as it is frequently used church, but it is also used for concerts making use of the church organs. It iis now quite planin decoration, but before WWII is contained many larger than live statues, of which only the heads have survived.

Visited during a guided tour. The contrast with the Dom and other non-evangelical buildings was very impressive. Besides visiting, it is really worth reading up about the history of this building. We had a guide wearing Roman garb... kept the teens interested too!

This is a huge, brick built Roman basilica, now converted into a Lutheran church. It would have been much more highly decorated than it is now but it is possible to imagine the emperor sitting on his throne and commanding all before him. Amazing

This building is huge !! Every section in the ceiling is 10 feet by 10 feet.I think it is the largest surviving single room Roman structure.It is now a Lutheran church ,but was a palace throne room build by the Emperor Constantine . It is free to the public , except for concerts

We approached the Basilica not really know what to expect but where amazed once we were inside it is absolutely huge and hard to take in , a photograph would not do it justice. It must be fantastic when there is a concert taking place as the acoustics are excellent, well worth a visit.

Although the Porte Negro is the well known sight in Trier, I found this Basilica built in the Roman period, even more interesting. This is not promoted a number one attraction, but it is. It is one of the few roman buildings that survived and is still used today. Look at the thick walls and image the meetings which took... More

The Basilica of Constantine in Trier, Germany is a Roman palace basilica built by emperor Constantine (AD 306–337) in the early 4th century. If you are me and love history, this place will keep you busy for a couple to a few hours. Fascinating!! A real must see.

This was amazing to visit. It is a wonderful piece of history that has been preserved wonderfully. Looking at it, you would have no idea that it is as old as it is and that the inside is so big. Our guide told us that two of the Porta Nigra could easily fit into it. Just beautiful.
