  • Impressive, informative, dog was in with. Tip: read the information booklet which you get at the entrance - very interesting. Admission €4. In the information booklet is also explain why the amphitheatre has no benches more ;-)

  • You can sit in the stands, walk in the arena and go down into the cellar. It was easy to imagine what this was like with 20,000 people packed in! 
  • A step back in time with a beautiful view over Trier. The underground complex is in very good condition. If you like history, this should be on your list.

  • Roman Amphitheater in Trier. The acoustics were amazing in this two thousand year old structure...a normal conversation could be easily heard from the other side. Any special musical event here would certainly be a treat!
  • Incredible to see such ancient ruins up close and personal. If you're there at the right time you can see a teacher instructing students in the styles of gladiatorial combat!
  • You wouldn't expect this in a city, so that was a surprise. Very nice place, lots of history and lots to learn. Educational. Great for kids. No tours, you can just walk around. Very photogenic place and impressive landmark.
  • Fascinating old Roman theater with great acoustics and a profound echo. The theater, the seats and the basement are quite large & empty but they can make for an interesting walk.
  • A must see! So much to see and you definitely need to go here!
