Konstantinbasilika, Trier

4.0
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.

  • The building is very large brick red, enormous, but the interior is completely empty. The truth is that I expected something more.

  • Impressive. (Honeycomb) wooden ceiling. Longer range without intermediate column. Impressive volumes.

  • You must simply appreciate this building just because of the simplicity. The squares on the wooden ceiling is 3 to 3 meters tall. Madness!

Where to stay in Trier

Trier offers a small selection of places to stay within the city. A youth hostel and a camper parking equipped with showers and toilet but no power caters to the budget travelers visiting the city. For more comfort, look for hotels in the Olewig area or Porta Nigra. Several four-star hotels provide even more luxury at relatively affortable price.
