Museum am Dom Trier, Trier

4.0
#3 of 6 in Museums in Trier
At Museum am Dom Trier, explore a collection of art and artifacts housed in an ancient Romanesque cathedral. The structure dates back to the fourth century, when World Heritage-listed Trier was considered the "Rome of the North." The museum includes religious artifacts such as funeral monuments, icons, and folk art, as well as modern pieces like "Newton's Cage" by Leendert van Der Vlugt. Look up to see the real highlight: a fourth-century painted ceiling depicting Emperor Constantine's mother, Helena, among others. It took ten years to reconstruct the work from thousands of fragments. Plan to visit Museum am Dom Trier during your Trier vacation using our convenient Trier travel planner .

  • Pictures aren't allowed but staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. Beautiful museum.
  • I was here on the occasion of the exhibition "NERO and the Christians". Worth watching, perfect presentation, imaginative design, and what is also important in midsummer, pleasantly air-conditioned. In conjunction with a walk to the trier Cathedral - very pleasant.

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.
