I first went there 30 years ago and wasn't impressed. They have done a great job of restoring the baths. The new Visitor's Center is very nice.

It's practically a quarry in its purest form. Construction of the baths began under Constantine the Great but was not completed. So baths never served according to their intended purpose. They were anything – barracks, the dressage arena, regimental museum, the castle, the bastion of the city wall, and even residential building. Until finally turned into a stone quarry. From... More

Very interesting site of a Roman bath complex dating from the 4th century. I really enjoyed being able to go into the below ground levels where the workers would have been. They are doing work on the main building, with part of it enclosed is scaffolding but it is still a worthwhile place to see.

If these baths had been finished, they would have been the largest Roman baths anywhere. But like many modern government projects priorities shifted before the project was complete. But even the scaled-down construction is large and impressive. Work is ongoing so over time the site will become even more interesting. Labels are in English as well as the usual local... More

for a few Euro you get to see an ancient Roman bathhouse. This site is Amazing it is pretty much an archaeological dig sit that you get to walk around and explore. Very rich history. We came in March of 2017 and parts of it are under renovation but this place was amazing to me. Walking several stories underground to... More

The whole place spoke about the existence of the Roman Empire. It is ancient and worth the curious eye to know what had happened in this part of the world outside Rome. It is just similar to other Roman Emperor's bath like the Villa Hadrian. All ruins worth the visit if you like much about its history of he Holy... More

Very nice place with an underground labyrinth. Really worth seeing although it has never been actually used for its purpose. Not expensive to access

What looks like remains of a late medieval castle are actually 2000 year old Roman ruins. It's just impressive when you imagine what Trier must have looked like at that time already. Definitely worth visiting when you're into pan-European history.

The Imperial Roman bath site in Trier was excellent for a history fan. Incredibly informative, with lots of facts about building techniques, non completion, disuse, structural changes and the ongoing restoration project being carried out. There's a great visitors centre with some wonderful exhibits and a very useful observation tower so that visitors can get a better sense of the... More

It's not until you get there that you really appreciate the magnitude of the Romans baths. They really are extensive and still imposing after all of this time. There is a well laid out visitor centre and you have to pay to actually go around the baths but even if time is short, you get a real sense of their... More
