Somewhat neglected site
Jan 2020 • Solo
Free attraction but out of season felt very unloved and uncared for. Worth a quick look if you are passing

Almost the only free thing you can visit in Trier
Aug 2019
Although it is nice to see you can feel that the place is not really taken care off. If you are spending a day in Trier it is worth the visit.

Well worth a visit, even if just to appreciate how advanced the Romans were.
Jul 2019
This is an area slightly away from the centre of Trier, but within easy walking distance. It is free to view, with walkways across the Roman remains. There are several information displays which are very informative, and which make you appreciate how different Roman settlements were, being far more advanced than the rest of Europe.

Ruins of a smaller Roman bath located close to the old Romerbrucke
May 2019 • Couples
These ruins can be seen from the roadside on Kaiserst, about 1 block away from the Romerbrucke so the site is easy to find, but the entrance is on Sudallee. Old Roman bricks, now covered in moss, lined the "ditches", some of which were parallel to the road. Lawn grew between these trenches. A covering of plywood was placed over a some sections as a protection - probably where the water was heated. Visitors do not walk in the field where the trenches are but on a raised walkway around the site. Trilingual information boards explain the workings of a Roman bath. Aerial photos give a good view of the site and drawings show what the site looked like when it was used as a Roman bath. The baths received their present name from a monastery that once was on that site, probably a Roman building that was repurposed. For some reason, nothing remains of that structure. However, it was impressive that something from the 2nd century AD would still be as visible as it was. Roman stones were often removed for reuse in other building projects.

We had seen, in other Roman bath sites, the methods Roman used for heating the baths and had seen pictures of the interior of such buildings. This site is no different and presents no new information. It's a long walk (13 minutes) to this site from either the Hauptmarkt or from Konstantine Basilica if one's visiting time in Trier is limited. The Imperial Baths may be closer but there is an admission fee (4 euros and 3 euros for seniors) while the Barbara Baths are free.

The remains of a once splendid Roman thermen
Oct 2018 • Solo
There are some remains of what once was a splendid Roman thermen building. There is a steel pathway running over the remains and there is information on all sides of this at points of interest. This information is in German, English, French and Dutch

Actually this information is the most interesting part of this site as there are only few remains

It's a bit off the beaten tourist track but when you are heading to the Roman bridge it's a good by pass. And it's free so...

Nice old roman bath
Jan 2018 • Couples
We found also this site closed but actually it was possible to see it quite well as we could approach the site and only the real entrance to the baths was closed.

A well-presented view into the City’s Roman past
Aug 2018 • Family
Trier is one of the oldest Roman settlements in Germany and there are numerous relics of that period which have been preserved.

The Barbarathermen, the largest Roman baths north of the Alps are located in a residential area of the city close to the river. The area is well signposted so easy to find.

This was once a massive complex of baths and heated chambers and a large section of it has been excavated and preserved. The visit is free and there are elevated walkways over the excavations with multi-lingual display/information boards at key sections, as you walk around the area. An engaging part of the information are the simulated images showing how the buildings, baths, chambers, halls and heating ducts may have looked based on detailed information from the excavations.

The site is in walking distance to other significant monuments so a good place to start your exploration of the city and what it has to offer.

Well-interpreted, 20-minute stop, free
Apr 2018 • Family
The multi-language signs are helpful for international travelers. The "path" is over the ruins. Interpretation signs offer images and a written description of each view. We had limited time in Trier and the location of this Bad near the Amphitheater was great. The designers really thought out all the details right down to painting the walkway near each information sign.

Informative and free
Dec 2017 • Family
This site is a gem. It was the 2nd largest baths of the time. They have uncovered only about a half of it, as the rest is under homes and roads. You walk along a platform and look down onto the site. There are information boards(with 4 or 5 different languages including German, English, French & Italian), and pictures to help explain what you were looking at and what it would have looked like. It only takes about 15 to walk and read your way through. And it’s free!!!! I actually got more information from this site than the Kaiser thermen.

Educational and Free

Really enjoyed walking the grounds and reading the signs that explained the baths. They also include diagrams and artist renditions of what it would have looked like in its heyday. The bridge that runs diagonally through the grounds gets you as close to the ruins as possible without actually touching them. Best of all, it's free and you can move at your own pace. There's plenty of restorative work going on; would love to see it all unearthed at some point. Definitely worth a look because it will only cost you time, nothing more.
