This stunning Cathedral is conveniently situated in the city centre full of beautiful examples of architecture throughout the ages. It also houses an important religious relic (the stated, holy robe of Christ). Aside from that the building and its decoration is beautiful. Full of religious iconography and stunning statues. The cloisters themselves are wonderful even on a cold February morning... More

You don't come to Trier for the wine only. Certainly you will visit the Dom and annex the Our Lady basilica. They are milestone in Western Architecture and broader Western culture. Spare some time and let the stones speak to you.

Amazing history to this cathedral with free access and surprizingly you can pretty much go anyway within the cathedral. Often other cathedrals will have limited access.

Instead of writing about it's history (the best description is written by unesco.org) I would like to draw your attention to it's inner yard, the cemetery and the cloister which is one of the most beautiful one I've ever seen. The particularity is the amazing mixture of different historical styles, which you can observe all in one place. Here you... More

Old church with roots in roman times, this is a must to see when in Trier. Easy to find in walking centre of city.

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.
