If you are in Trier, you definitely have to see this Palais. Its totally worth it! The garden is well maintained and its situated right at the centre yet covered with enough discreetness. When I 1st saw it from the end of garden with the fountain, I literally had my jaws dropped. A must visit.

This place is quite unique in Trier. The architecture, the flair of the near garden and the statues - it's as if this place wouldn't really belong to the rest of the ancient and medieval city. As I've been there a couple of times already, I can recommend to spend some time chilling in the sun when you're visiting for... More

This was an elaborate Rococo beauty situated close to the heart of the historic town center and adorned with spacious Palace Gardens. During my visit it was unfortunately not opened for visit - I realized only quite late that it was still used presently as a district administration office and not opened regularly for public visit. It was a pity... More

The palace is considered to be the most beautiful Rococo palace in the world. We didn't go inside but wandered around the gardens which were in full bloom and lovely. The outside of the building is most impressive. Don't miss at least walking through.

The palace grounds are truly beautiful! Flowers, fountains, lush green lawn, and beyond that is a park with a lovely pond.

It is mind-boggling to see the buildings that were built back "in the day".The absolutly beautiful building and grounds is a real delight.

When I reached this place it was from behind the Evangelical Lutheran Church, I think it was the best thing because I got to explore the palace a little by little and it kept wowing from ever step I took. Its well maintained, the garden is amazing and colourful and the palace it self is magnificent.

We only viewed this building from the outside but it was worth a look. The architecture is beautiful, the proximity to the Roman Hall is interesting as is the story behind it.

With so many other must-see attractions this is one that is definitely for those who enjoy the history of the last few centuries. You can mistake this for Vesaille in some ways and reminds one of that period. This is an attraction that will be for your second day in Trier as there are many other attractions with higher ratings.... More

Wow, wow, wow! Spectacular ornate and beautiful building with beautiful manicured gardens and fountains. Unfortunately, the building is closed so you can't go inside but it is definitely worth coming and walking around this magnificent structure. The baths are not too far from here which you must see as well. But don't miss this piece of architecture. Looks more to... More
