About Cathedral Of Trier, Trier

The High Cathedral of Saint Peter in Trier is the oldest cathedral in Germany. Listed as part of the Roman Monuments in 1986, the cathedral is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Its structure was constructed during multiple eras and each era has contributed to its design in some way. Today, it houses a significant collection of artworks, architecture and holy relics. Built above a former palace from the era of the Roman emperor Constantine the Great, the cathedral still exhibits the remains of the first basilica. Inside the cathedral, you shall be able to see:

  • Romanesque interior with baroque decoration and Gothic vaulting and archways.
  • A set of triple-nave, two-choir basilica with a transept and six towers.
  • The central section where the original walls rise up to a height of 26m. Huge fragment of granite column from Constantine’s church.
  • There is a magnificent Romanesque tympanum over the south door which depicts Christ between Virgin Mary and St. Peter.
  • Tomb of papal envoy Ivo in the south aisle that carries Romanesque carvings of a dragon-like creature and a human head peaking out.
  • The central attraction is the Holy Robe of Christ.
  • The Treasury which displays an important relic Holy Nail which is believed to be one of those used in the crucifixion.
  • Exhibits such as Chalices, Bishop’s treasures and the 10th century St. Andrew’s Altar.
  • On the way out, you shall be able to see graffiti from seven centuries and the elaborate West Portal.

  • The Saint Peter's Cathedral is the oldest cathedral in Germany. If I recall it precisely it was around since the 3rd century, although not the current building. It is a very impressive building with beautiful architecture, sculptures and craftmanship. They keep the Seamless Robe of Jesus here, which is said to be worn by Jesus himself before his crucifixion. Sadly, it is not accessible. I think it is a worthy place to visit, even for nonreligious people who has a bit of interest in building structure and arts. I was in awe by the size of the main hall and the church organ.

  • Loved it! The oldest cathedral in Germany, it's huge and you keep walking and finding more interesting things to see. The details are amazing, Jesus' robe remains are here, there's the main area and a anal chapel within the cathedral. Beautiful.

  • Absolutely massive. The intricate detail blows the mind alongside the age and it's vast history. A pleasure to walk through at one's own pace.

  • Some of the most beautiful cathedrals I have ever seen, by their magnitude and the promenores that can be found inside and outside. I advise everyone to come and visit.

  • Gorgeous cathedral iN Historic Highlight of Germany Trier. Highly recommend visiting, especially for a concert experience. Lovely wine bar/restaurant nearby, too.
