Konstantinbasilika, Trier

(4/5 based on 300+ 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.

  • Nowadays this structire is an Evangelical Lutheran Church and it is very impressive both in- and outside. The main reason why I was much astonished by this place is the fact it is almost 1700 years ol...  more »
  • Nothing was here randomly left everything was calculation - and this in several ways: by the functional side up to the effect. Today a Protestant Church was originally the audience Hall of the Roman emperors and primarily a function: impress - and that creates this building until today.

  • A little away from the main square. Free of charge. In the atmosphere of the medieval church is not. More back in the old buildings. It is a town history from Roman times is the city itself.

  • 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.
