This cathedral is one of the most beautiful cathedral I have ever seen. From the exterior, you can already admire its mighty structure. It was very crowded on the day we've visited because mainly of tourists but inside, you can have some peace and tranquility while adoring the relics of this church. Exploring the St.Peter’s Dom in Trier is a... More

This made the visit to Trier absolutely fantastic beyond words. The sanctity and holiness of the whole Cathedral touches one's soul; reminds us of our human weakness and that feeling of love and compassion from God is endless. Until the next visit!

Beautiful Cathedral in the heart of Trier. It is worth to go inside and feel the beauty of it. Nice altar, silence and peace.

Very impressive, would like to spend more time there. The oldest Cathedral in Germany. It has two interesting "relics" - no sure I am convinced but definitely a fascinating Catholic Cathedral.

The Dom incorporates the remains of an older 4th century church. It is the oldest one in Germany and constructed in stages during the early 11th century, late 12th, mid-13th and 14th centuries. The carved ceiling at the back of the church was breathtaking.

Beautiful church and free for a self guided tour. We visited after Christmas and it was so nice to see it still decorated for Christmas. Beautiful Cathedral!

Incredible Baroque decor inside, including an intense ceiling in one section. It's also surprisingly warm inside compared to every cathedral I have ever been to so that was a nice surprise. The Holy Robe Chapel is pretty underwhelming IMO except for the Baroque sculpture at the entrance; you can't see anything beyond glass doors anyway. I skipped the Treasury as... More

Beautiful inside and out! Took my 4 and 6 yr old and they too enjoyed the history but most importantly lighting their own candles to say a prayer.

The High Cathedral of Saint Peter in Trier is the oldest cathedral in the country. The Church is notable for its extremely long life span under many different eras, which each contributed to some elements to its design, resulting in a cathedral added onto gradually rather than rebuilt in different eras, thus leaving older designs in lieu of tearing them...
