€4 entry. Maybe worth getting Trier card if you are going into the Lands-museum and more than one Roman site @€12. We day tripped from Luxembourg. Amphitheater is great display of Roman architecture of the area. More imagery of what it looked like might be nice. There is an info sheet with ticket which is the only info available.

A small beautifully preserved amphitheater just outside the centre and a stone bridge over the Moselle River. Go up to have a panorama view and also beneath to see the arena being a vast cellar in the past.

You can sit in the stands, walk in the arena and go down into the cellar. It was easy to imagine what this was like with 20,000 people packed in!

Old Roman Amphitheater just Outside of Town. Walking through, you wonder how many events have taken place many centuries ago. There is an underground Area where event venues were kept. As to what is left, it is quite impressive!

If rating the amphitheater purely on the basis of what exists today, you may be disappointed. After the Romans departed Trier, the amphitheater was blundered for the materials. As a result, today it is just a shell of how it used to look. Having stated that, the beauty of the amphitheater is the thoughts and images it evokes. Those personal... More

The amphitheatre is a little out of town so if you are on your feet it takes a little extra effort to walk there. But it is well worth the visit. The space and the ruins are impressive and there has been a lot of work done to conserve what is there. It is possible to walk all around the... More

My husband and I went here on our honeymoon. So much history had taken place here. Very cool. Make sure you walk underground in the Amphitheater.

Nice place to go on a sunny day (was raining when we were these). Make sure to go into the undercroft below the arena floor. Could use some more descriptive boards etc. Grumpy attendant at the entrance (didn't like my €50 note even though I was spending €24 on a combo ticket).

It's a good walk from downtown Trier and difficult to get to because of barriers and fast cars. A true 'must see' -- a well preserved relic built over 2000 years ago by the Romans.

While I am not fortunate enough to have visited any other ancient amphitheaters like many other reviewers, I found this site fascinating. You could picture yourself in Roman times while wandering around - especially the underground area. The theater is massive and you get gorgeous views of a vineyard if you climb to the top of the stands. One of... More
