3.9/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web
A large, Protestant cathedral, Konstantinbasilika has been preserved from the era of Constantine the Great. Aula Palatina, or the Basilica of Constantine, was built by Emperor Constantine in 310 CE. Its large hall features an impressive high, unsupported ceiling that gives the place a sense of spaciousness and emptiness. It was restored in the 19th century and became a Protestant church but was damaged heavily during World War II. The historical decorations were not reconstructed; nevertheless, some exhibits and remnants of statues remain inside. Put Konstantinbasilika and other Trier attractions into our Trier itinerary builder, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • The really attractive in this site are the dimensions of the building. The Church itself is worthless, while lel size and proportions of the building, built in the 3RD century, cause when less admiration. Access to the interior is free of charge.

  • Don't miss this. Nothing ornate about this church. Brick on the outside and the same inside. One huge simple space, yet beautiful in its own way. The modern organ is massive and you need to be a crane...  read more »
  • This is a unbelievable site. It is hard to imagine this Roman Hall is now being used as a church. It is truly a marvel of Roman engineering. It is a site in Trier not to be missed. 
  • It's a big church but compared to catholic churches a kind of empty. Somethung different to see and interessting when you know about tje ideas of Luther.
  • Great surroundings, the Church is plain inside, but still a interesting place to visit. The history alone makes it worthwhile.
  • Beautiful garden, it's like you're in front of a palace. The church itself wasn't the best thing I have seen in Trier, but it was a great experience though.
  • Very nice.
  • I had read a lot about the Basilica before arriving in Trier and it was one of those stops I really wanted to see. The outside was nice and we were able to see part of a statue (just the foot remains) in the courtyard. I'm not sure if we were supposed to be there, but they stopped us at the entrance and said people aren't allowed in. We were disappointed but had a great time in Trier, nonetheless.
