Imperial Roman Baths (Kaiserthermen), Trier

4.1
Step back in time 1,660 years ago at Imperial Roman Baths (Kaiserthermen).

As you explore what remains of this grand complex, marvel at the ingenuity of Roman engineering in the boiler rooms, and walk through the labyrinth of underground tunnels. Climb the observation tower to get a good overview of the site and appreciate its size. Make your Trier itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

    To day (August 2017) hot springs are in the works and it seems for a time, since they are only the scaffolding and not seen anyone working stand. Impressive is the temperature that makes in the underground galleries. The whole had to be a marvel, by its size and by the Majesty of the building.

    Large range of Trier is allowed to take pictures, while repairing didn't look too much. Underground passage is like a maze and conscientious. I think that better sights without exterior repair.

  • The ruins of the Imperial Baths are really impressive. There is a little museum beside the site where you can get some information. Walking through the remains of walls and subterranean passages is though far more exciting. The whole area looks like a giant maze and takes some time to get discovered.
  • Beautiful place. Enjoyed the history and it made a very interesting lesson for the children.
  • Barbara Baths, located near the Moselle river, was larger than Imperial Baths but the latter was more photogenic in my opinion, winning my attention with its standing arches although I did not get close to the former to check if there were other interesting visible features. Apart from the arches, the other feature of the Imperial Baths which caught my attention the most was a colossal marble foot affixed to a pedestal outside the entrance of the baths.
  • really historical. Recommended if you're on tour in trier
  • Its a good thing the entrance fee includes a map and some background information about the thermen. Otherwise we would not have known what we were looking at during the walk on the grounds. Interesting!
