  • Compared to roman amphitheatres I saw in the middle east, this one has very little left, but you can walk through the entrance halls and go underneath the arena, which adds a lot. Combine it with a wa...  more »
  • This was our last stop on our day out in Trier and perhaps that is why this did not appeal. It is more or less a sandy oval / circle surrounded by high banks of grass from where you can look down on i...  more »
  • All that is left is the basic shell as the stones were pilfered to build other things after the Romans left. Still if you have been to a Roman amphitheater it is worth a brief visit.  more »

  • The remnants of this Roman Amphitheater are about two thousand years old. The upper levels in the middle of the nature are splendid to watch. You can also discover the catacombs which are gloomy and humid. Sometimes there are concerts, markets and theater plays on this site that have a very unique atmosphere.
  • it's nice to give this a visit. not to long but still you have to do this in trier.
  • At 4 Euros an adult we expected more. Still an interesting stop if you have time.
  • There is not too much to see, but the things that you can see are worth the visit. Underneath the arena there is a large basement wich is incredible.
  • Simply breathtaking. Takes you back in time. Sadly some things aren't to be seen anymore
