  • Nice example of baroque culture. A bit messy in eclectic interior styling as a result of its long history, but containing beautiful details. Look for the tympanum on the right wall, the lionheads supporting pillars on the same wall and enjoy the idyllic gallery-surrounded inner garden behind the right-wall exit.

  • Beautiful church! Worth a visit! Such a marvelous piece of construction! Free to enter!

  • Absolutely fantastic place, one of the most beautiful Dome I`ve seen in Germany. It is a must to visit in the beauties of Trier
