“Beautiful - and free!”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

The Dom of Trier is quite astonishing - it is vast in scale, and yet is surprisingly cosy. The great treasure of the Cathedral the the 'Holy Robe' - the relic of the seamless garment that Jesus wore before his crucifixion. This is given the architectural pride of place above the sanctuary.

Well worth a visit - and contrary to other reports, the cathedral is totally free to visit. (There was a charge for a guided tour, however.)

“Beautiful roman Dome”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Great place overall. I visit Cathedral most of the time, when I come to a new town/city and this one is worth the visit for sure. Not only the overall structure is magnificent, but it also creates the atmosphere appropriate for the prayer, if you are a believer. The glasses by Chagall are great and there lost of other worthy elements of the decor if you are into art.

“Not free at all”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

It is an impressive building but they wanted 4.50 euro to get in, and that's when it stops for me.
Historic buildings are always nice to see. In short we did not see the inside. In short, just another beautiful historical building

“Worth visit”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

The cathedral is really beautiful, really worth visit.Do not miss it. No fee to enter. Info for people traveling by car I left my car on the road Balduinstrasse for few hours, which is just 5 minutes walk to the cathedral. Porta Nigra close by too and the market in colorful town
