Liebfrauenkirche, Trier

4.6
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.

    Located right next to the Cathedral in fact upon entering the plaza is indistinguishable from each other. Look for a star gold on the floor from where you can see the twelve apostles, one in each of the columns supporting the roof.

    This church is much smaller than the Dom in annex but no less beautiful. She is worth seeing from 10 am in the morning.

    We have visited was Sunday morning does not at the mass, but by entering in the early afternoon. As has become the Cathedral 11:00 enter the units, so each different time. Church Interior was quaint pictures such as keynote, city and flowers and leaves are green painted on the ceiling.

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.
