Trier has three Roman baths, but the Kaiserthermen are the best of the lot, and the biggest this side of the Alps. The ruined wall of the Kaiserthermen stands tall and iconic, but it only hints at the maze of tunnels below the seemingly empty green grass in front of it. Once you step down from ground level, you enter the baths proper, and they far from being steaming hot, they are cool and as damp as a system of caves. On a swelteringly hot sunny day of about 30 degrees centigrade (85f) it was cool as an air conditioned room down below. I didn't want to leave!

Directions: From the main square take the road left of St Gangolf, and walk down Grabenstrasse until you take a right at Germanstrasse. Keep walking until you see the ruined wall, and make sure you don't miss the glass doors of the entrance on the left.
