#2 of 129 in Things to do in Trier
Must see · Religious Site · Architectural Building
The castle-like architecture mixes many different styles. Note the vaulted interior and ceiling, as well as the intricate stucco ceiling in the western end. Stop by the tombs of the Archbishops of Trier buried on the grounds. Don't miss the skull of St. Helena, the mother of Roman Emperor Constantine, in the crypt. The cloister courtyard offers striking views of the tower, covered halls, and inner garden. Check the website for times of services. You can attend Roman Catholic mass or vespers, but tourists cannot explore the cathedral during a service. Before you head to Trier, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Trier day trip planning website, to make sure you see all that Trier has to offer, including St. Peter's Cathedral (Dom).

  • One of the highest points in the city. The cathedral is very beautiful, although sober, and presents some beautiful artworks. There is a mix of styles, but the baroque ceiling stands out and is absolutely eye-catching. The cathedral is located in the historical centre, being almost impossible not to be visited.
  • Great architecture from the outside to the inside and majestic organ inside too. Amount of detail and history inside is amazing,even partly covered wall with a painting on original stone. A must see in Trier.
  • Germany's oldest city is worth a visit. The environment is also great.
  • One of the top places to see in Trier. The church is very visible as you arrive in the city. The church's interior is full of interesting sculptures, stories, chapel where you'll find the relic of Jesus Christ's robe, the ornate Church organ and much more. You can buy a guide brochure for 0.50 Eu which can help you get more info as you explore the church on your own.
  • Liked this site the most out of all the historical sites I've seen in Trier. Recommended!
