“Good if you have the Pass”

Thermen am Viehmarkt
Ranked #36 of 177 things to do in Trier
Attraction details
Reviewed 13 March 2016

We had the pass for all of the locations around Trier, it was worth a visit, but I'm not sure I would have paid for this separately. There are a lot of cool ruins, but they are stacked on top of each other, it is quite hard to easily understand what is what down there. It is cool to see and I recommend getting the Trier pass and taking a quick look, with a few minutes at least.

Hardly need to enter for the price as these baths or what remains are protected by a cathedral of glass through which you can peek into deep bathing history.

The relics are covered not like the other bath relics in town. The type of tour one can get depends on each person. For me a self guided tour was better.

As this whole area is overcovered with glass it can be visited on a rainy day. The staff is friendly and helpfull. When I visited only one other visitor could be spotted. In the small movie room a documenatry is shown about the Barbara baths which is most interesting! 8364 m², AD 100, 3 large thermal baths used 4th century. After the fall of the Roman Trier it was used as baths and over the centuries fell in decay. 13th Century the ruins lost its importance and were used as quarry. Discovered by Excavations for an underground parking garage underneath the air-raid shelters from WW II. Also the remains of a 17th century Capucinian monastery, former vineyards and two old cemeteries. Two hot-water baths, a well preserved cold-water bath, hollow-floor heating systems, sewer canals, and massive walls on deep foundations. 17th and 18th Century the Capucin built several buildings on the eastern part of the ruins, the remaining space was used to build a monastery garden. 1802 Abrogation the Viehmarkt became a marketplace. The ruins in obliviance, it was believed that there were only two spas (Barbara baths and Imperial baths). Architect Oswald Mathias Ungers designed for the exposed ruins of Thermae and Capuchin monastery a protective building with glass facades, “Ungers display case” in the vernacular.
