“Awesome Cathedral”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

I have been to this cathedral many times. Every time it has been awesome. The best time was when the holy tunic was on display to the public. Very well laid out, and impressive. Every time i go down to Trier, i get a glimpse of this cathedral. Just impressive it has survive all this time.

“Amazing Church”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

St. Peter's Cathedral...as soon as you walk in you are instantly overwhelmed with it's beauty. This being the oldest church in the country is impeccably maintained and is a must see if you are in Trier. The carvings on the ceilings are true works of art and the altars were beautifully arranged. There are also areas for you to light a candle and say prayers.

“Beautiful architecture”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

St. Peter's Cathedral is a beautiful old Roman Catholic church, the oldest cathedral in the country. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a definite must see if visiting Trier. Apparently the chapel houses the seamless robe which attracted over 500 000 pilgrims in 2012 when it was put on display.
Be sure to walk up the stairs on the right up to the area above and behind the alter to get a spectacular view of the church.
Lying next outside next to the church is a Roman column from the 4th century.
