a little bit outside (still in the city and reachable by bus - some parking lots available). And part of the old roman city. The wide of this theater is impressive and parts are reconstructed in a way that you can easily explore this building:...More

You can imagine (with horror) the slaves being brought out to fight and the crowds rushing through the gates (in parlance, "vomitoriums") to watch the spectacles. Not much interpretation but fascinating nonetheless. Pay to enter but worth it.

This is my favorite place in all of Trier. Well preserved and gives a great insight to how big of a Roman stronghold was located here. A must visit when in Trier.

We had enough cash to see the amphitheater which is much like the Roma Coliseum, except now grass bleacher sections. Pretty eerie to be down below ground level thinking about going up to meet your death by lion. Multiple small boys had shield and swords...More

Spent a good hour walking around here, enjoying the atmosphere and structure. Amazing to be able to go below the arena and see the wooden beams holding up the arena surface.

We walked to the amphitheatre from the centre of Trier, about a 20 minute walk. A board outside shows pictures of the external parts. We took a self guided tour with the assistance of a sheet of information. The internal walls are in place but...More

We made the visit on a very hot day. Bus stop outside the venue. Only 3€ each for seniors. Very impressive site. All areas accessable.

A must if you visit Trier. Lovely example of a Roman amphitheatre. Incredibly well preserved and you can sense what it must have been like all those years ago.
