St. Peter's Cathedral (Dom), Trier

Set on a fourth-century Roman site, St. Peter's Cathedral (Dom) is thought to be the oldest cathedral in Germany. The castle-like church's impressive architecture mixes nearly eight centuries of different styles, including Romanesque, Gothic, and Baroque. Note the vaulted interior and ceiling, as well as the intricate stucco ceiling in the western end. Stop by the tombs of the Archbishops of Trier buried on the grounds. Don't miss the skull of St. Helena, the mother of Roman Emperor Constantine, in the crypt. The cloister courtyard offers striking views of the tower, covered halls, and inner garden. Check the website for times of services. You can attend Roman Catholic mass or vespers, but tourists cannot explore the cathedral during a service.
