St. Peter's Cathedral (Dom), 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.

  • I highly recommend visiting this cathedral when visiting Trier. It is absolutely beautiful and totally worth the visit.  more »
  • 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.
