Of all the many sights in Trier that stand as testaments to the area’s Roman era of history, the Aula Palatina is by far the most exciting and interesting. This massive stone structure, standing some 30 meters tall, dates back to the 4th century AD and served as the throne room to the Emperor and his court. It is a truly imposing sight, and dwarfs the landscape, despite having been demolished on a few separate occasions and then rebuilt.
In the 12th century, this amazing structure was used as the home of the archbishop of Trier, signaling a major changeover in the heritage of Germany that can be felt just by observing this powerful attraction. The 17th century continued to see changes as the Aula Palatina was integrated into a newer structure. Today, the Aula Palatina is a church for the Protestant faith that holds services regularly. Visitors are invited to come and sit in on service or just to take a look around at the majestic sights of one of Germany’s oldest attractions.
