  • 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!
