The Basilica of Trier or the more correctly termed, Konstantinbasilika is one of the many great monuments dating from Roman times in this city. The Konstantinbasilika is a huge red brick structure. It at onetime served as the throne room for the Emperor Constantine. Only part of the Roman structure still remains. What we see today is still very impressive. The ceiling is 30m high and the building itself is 75m long. The interior is superficially not all that interesting as it is very barren. Apparently in Roman times it was much more decorative. Today it serves as a Protestant church.
It is free to enter the Konstantinbasilika. It is open from 9am to 6pm daily except on Sunday when it opens at noon.
Directions: West from the Cathedral.
