  • the Roman baths in Trier are truly a surprise. are large, well kept and have a characteristic that diversifies from those we know in Italy: are lightened by one or two lighter strips in the brick structure. We also visited the dungeons, very well kept, where they had located all services (water and heating, firewood storage, etc.) are not very big, at least compared to Diocletian or of Caracalla, and apparently were never completed and never entered not in operation but are an interesting sign of the passage of the Romans.

  • We're in the right place to learn how the Roman baths were designed. Everything is explained to you. A good basis for general culture awaits you. The underground part allows children to frolic and play hide-and-seek while you dig you head to understand how water circulated.

  • Very interesting site of a Roman bath complex dating from the 4th century. I really enjoyed being able to go into the below ground levels where the workers would have been. They are doing work on the ...  more »

  • 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!
  • Just incredible! I love to see the digital reconstructions so you can imagine what it was like back then! Reignited my childhood dream of being an archeologists!
  • The remains of un finished Roman baths. in the oldest Roman city in Germany. Visitors can access the underground water system and walk through what would have been the different types of bathes.
  • Great view of history. Fun to explore
  • Mostly in ruins except for a few arches that you can see from the exterior without paying to get in
