Konstantinbasilika, Trier
(4/5 based on 280+ 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.

  • huge church without interest, except its size and the feeling of greatness inside, otherwise it is sober and rather ugly outside, the tour takes 5 minutes

  • At the first glance somewhat hidden, even boring, but if you will be aware, in the throne room of Constantine - which you can't believe so impressively - the best in Trier

  • We enjoyed learning the history of this church, especially after visiting the Dom. It's part of the history of Constantine and Helena. Although not part of the church, there is a nice cafe outside tha...  more »

  • Its not so nice of a church. Until you understand its age and history. Then the size of it really hits you, to be build so long ago and still be standing in great condition.
  • Impressive church build by the Romans almost 2000 years ago. The place is worth visit. Interesting history of it
  • If you visit, you have to visit this basilica. Beautiful setting, garden and statues. Impressive, and not too far from the shopping center.
  • 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.
