Liebfrauenkirche, Trier

(4.6/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
The oldest Gothic church in Germany, Liebfrauenkirche, along with Trier's cathedral and Roman monuments, is a UNESCO-protected World Heritage Site. Built in the 13th century, the church is notable for its atypical cruciform floor plan as a round church resembling a 12-petal rose. In the 12 supporting columns, you'll find paintings of the 12 apostles, as well as the 12 articles of the Apostle's Creed. Due to damage during World War II, the church has been painstakingly restored with modern stained-glass windows that flood the vast hall with light and color on a sunny day.

  • Part of the cathedral complex is considerably more detail as the main church the Church of our Lady. Portal is an absolute highlight.

  • Was that 2 churches or 1 huge connected church? It turned out to be both. A close look at the floor plan also revealed that there were 12 supporting pillars, and I noticed that each of them had an apo...  more »
  • The Liebfrauenkirche von Trier is right next to the Cathedral of Trier and makes a beautiful unit. It was given in the year 1243 of the Archbishop Konrad in order. Its interior is beautifully light and decorated with beautiful stained glass. The altar, which is located in the center of the Church is worth a visit. The Church of our Lady with the DOM is directly connected by a walkway.

  • A place full of history. If you find a guide ask him whatever you want. They are very helpful
  • Historical church, it should be a nice stop for a minute or so to enter and to visit its peaceful inner garden just in the middle of the effervescent town centre.
  • Just next to the Dom is this churche just freshly renovated. It's different than the Dom and it's nice to compare the different architecture.
  • Great spot
  • In the heart of Trier, suddenly too much surprising, for, in General, not the most famous cities of Germany. In particular, I can't remember where else would in direct neighbourhood there were two huge Cathedral, which pulls the corny name majestic, but so be it. Two of the era's architecture-tželovesnyj and perky Romanesque St. Peter's perfectly complemented by the elegance and high style of the Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Be sure to enter both-after the overwhelming grandeur of the Cathedral Church seems to be particularly delicate, because of its shape and the plan-blossomed flower.
