  • For those who are the Roman history interested in is a very worth seeing goal. The beautiful built-in input/outbuildings includes lots of interesting facts.

  • The Imperial Baths make an appealing impression, the area is provided with strange tents, the buildings were partly armed and with new buildings loses on the edge the whole lot of originality. The staff at the cash register was also very unfriendly. I was disappointed and soon left the location.

  • 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!

Where to stay in Trier

Trier offers a small selection of places to stay within the city. A youth hostel and a camper parking equipped with showers and toilet but no power caters to the budget travelers visiting the city. For more comfort, look for hotels in the Olewig area or Porta Nigra. Several four-star hotels provide even more luxury at relatively affortable price.
