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.

  • The Basilica of Constantine is not really a church, but a Hall that could have different public functions. In this case a throne room. Only from the 4th century this became a church.

  • Little impressive, inside it feels so bare to ... The many failed refurbishment work make it any better.

  • The Evangelical Church of the Redeemer in the city of Trier was originally a Roman Palace Auditorium. It was built as the audience Hall of the Roman emperors, who lived in the 4th century in the city. Great atmosphere, beautiful organ, is also used for concerts. Guided tours are possible by prior arrangement. Contact persons for guided tours is the Municipal Office of the Protestant Church of Trier.

  • 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.
