Worth seeing even during renovations.
Oct 2020 • Couples
The magnitude of the underground chambers at this site are unbelievable. A must see! There are a lot of renovations ongoing at the site so it is difficult to see and appreciate the tall exterior of the Kaiserthermen. There was a brochure in English to explain the site.

Historic

This is one of the main historic sites of Trier, but there is not so much to see, as most of it is in ruins. The history is nice though: one of the largest bath houses of the Roman Empire, but allegedly never used for bathing...

Incredible to experience what romans built 1700 years ago
Aug 2020 • Couples
Whilst the site is a static museum with a walk around the ruins of what was, it’s incredible to see that 1700 years ago our civilization had underfloor heating and health spas and then we went into the dark ages of not even bathing....

Very interesting
Jul 2020 • Family
You get a feel of the sheer size of Roman settlements. The interesting bits are underground which you can see.
You get an idea of the advanced technology of the Romans regarding heating and pretty much else.

Nice but lots of constructions
Jul 2020 • Friends
I went here with friends. The ruins are impressive and the explanations are really nice (on signs). I think we spent 40 minutes here. The labyrint is nice to see and really cool (nice when you are there in the summer). It is nice but it has lots of constructions going on and therefore you see a lot of metal everywhere. This is a minus point.

Not Very Much Here
Jul 2019
4 € entrance fee per person, not worth it. There is one wall still left of what once was vast imperial baths, this wall on the east side of the property and easily visible without paying. Kaisertherman was built in early 4th century during Constantine’s reign. We did get to go underground, but now it's alley/tunnels. If you are here and needing something to do, you could easily walk around the park surrounding this place and have the same experience.

Better than expected
Mar 2020
Looks can be deceiving. I have been to Trier twice for conferences and only got to visit these ruins, of one of the Roman Baths, of which there are two I think, this time. First impression from the street is of a little bit of the ruined hot and tepid room end visible (currently partly clad in scaffolding for conservation), however, actually step on site and there is a wealth of underground passages in a good state of preservation to explore. Well worth a half hour or so of your time. The entrance building also has a good and short video about the baths and the ancient Roman town of Trier itself.

Great history
Jan 2020
While in Trier it is a must to visit the ancient Roman sights. The Kaiserthermen is an amazing piece of ancient Roman architecture and construction ability. Walk thru the tunnels and wonder how intelligent the people who built this truly were. There is a short video about the history before you begin your walk.

Romam Baths -Military drill Field
Dec 2019
I probably would have given an excellent rating had I not visited at a time when reconstruction was taking place. Much of interest was obscured by fencing and netting and access to underground tunnels was blocked by fencing. This is another site of Roman Baths . Romans had to be the cleanest citizens in history. There is also a large field where military took part in drills, exercise, and sports. The structures date back to 4 AD.There is an indoor exhibit with models and some AV display.There is an observation tower from which to take photos and it has an elevator. I visited with my Antikencard Premium Card which gets you into all the main Roman Antiquity for 18 Euro and can be purchased at the admission desk in the various sites.

Nice ruins. More could have been made of exhibition area
Jan 2020 • Solo
Nice ruins which are being worked on at present. Lots of scaffolding on site

The exhibition space could have been better used
