Cathedral of Saint Peter (Trierer Dom)
Trier Cathedral/Dom

The Cathedral of Saint Peter is the oldest cathedral in Germany and the seat of the Roman Catholic Archbishop Bishop of Trier. The edifice is notable for its extremely long life span under multiple different eras, each contributing some elements to its design, including the center of the main chapel made of Roman brick laid under the direction of Saint Helen, resulting in a cathedral added on to gradually rather than rebuilt in different eras. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Cathedral Information Office offers tours through the Cathedral and the Church of Our Lady or through the excavations under the Cathedral Information Office.

Hours: April 1 to October 31: daily 6:30am - 6pm. November 1 to March 31: daily 6:30am - 5:30pm.
