Joined a two hour city tour on foot. Very interesting and it included also a visit to the Roman Baths.
We almost didn't go into the baths, but I'm glad we did. There is reconstruction going on, but walking into the tunnels was fascinating.
There is a reesonable amount to see, although not a great deal of interpretation in English. Best value is to get a combined ticket that permits admission to a number of the historic sites of Trier.
Seems like everything has construction going on but I guess if things weren't continually taken care of they would not be here for generations to come.
Wasn't really expecting to see Roman culture in Germany and the walkling tour is a nice way to spend a couple hours. Tunnels are interesting and there is a lot to read if you take your time. Most of the information is on the posters or billboards by each area. Tunnels are interesting and having the ability to walk underground was neat. Presentation int he main viewing area was also nice and informative. Was likely the most reasonably priced attraction we saw
This sight is well laid-out and keeps you well-informed. The tunnels beneath are a must-see, and are well-lit and impossible to get lost in. This is next-door to the Rheinisches Landesmuseum, so it is easy to see both in 1 afternoon!
To few thing to see. Some sections of walls, but not enough to spend more time than 15 minutes there. In addition to that there was no explanation.
We were impressed by seeing how Romans were organized in 360 AD
The baths were divided in two wings being one for cold water and other for hot water.
The water supply to the entire complex was delivered via a 13KM pipeline from the Ruwer river.
In the 4th century the Romans built this huge imperial thermal springs. It is an impressive witness of what humans could achieve and design in an era without machines.
Nice stroll among the baths. Be sure to head underground and walk the tunnels. Also, take the stairs to the top of the tower to get a panoramic view of the site, and check out the diagram of what it must have looked like 1800 years ago. There's lots of 21st century railings, etc., so it's hard to get pictures with only the ancient portion.
Although I got a flyer with the layout and main information I really missed information on site that would make me more understand what I see. I appreciated that I could freely walk and discover as long as I wanted but next time I will probably join a guided tour.
