Tips

  • Bumble-Bee

    The Liebfrauen Basilica in Trier is the oldest Gothic church in Germany and the parish church of the Liebfrauen parish. Built in the high Gothic style by French architects, it is hard to beat in terms of filigree beauty and Gothic elegance. The floor plan has the shape of a Greek rose. Closed in January 2008, the church was reopened in September 2011 after extensive interior renovation under the motto "Let the rose bloom again".

    The coherent cloister alone, winding somewhere between the cathedral and the Liebfrauen, is worth a visit.

    The Liebfrauenkirche is built directly against the cathedral. A very interesting church and very informative. You should definitely connect with the cathedral. In the church in the middle of the Liebfrauenkirche there is a square section that reveals the construction of the foundation of the church and provides information about its special features.

    The Liebfrauenkirche in Trier is located right next to the Trier Cathedral in the center of the city. Together with the Elisabeth Church in Marburg, it is the oldest Gothic church in Germany and the most important and earliest Gothic central building in the country.

    The floor plan of the high Gothic LIEBFRAUENBASILIKA (1227-1260) has the shape of a Greek rose.
    It is the southern part of the double church complex, the northern part of which is the Trier Cathedral.

    Visually forms a unit with the dome from the outside, but is an independent building. Worth seeing, free admission.

    Start of construction around 1230. The church is a central building, the floor plan is created in rosette form. With figures, the west portal is equipped, inside colorful glass windows produce a magical light.

    In contrast to the neighboring cathedral, which was constantly expanded, rebuilt and expanded, the Liebfrauenkirche is entirely in one style.

    Church worth seeing, in different styles. Sticks to the cathedral and also has a connection, which is unfortunately closed.

    Possibly the oldest surviving picture in Trier Cathedral is the tympanum in the south wall at the portal to the Church of Our Lady. It is a sandstone relief from around 1180, showing Christ enthroned in the middle, Mary, the patroness of the Liebfrauenkirche, on the left, and Peter, the patron saint of the cathedral, on the right. The figures stand out three-dimensionally, while the frame ornament is kept flat. In the course of the restoration, which was completed in 1974, the original colors of the sculpture were uncovered, which had been whitewashed over several times over the past few years and covered with a thick layer. Subtleties of the representation such as hair and the folds of the robes are clearly recognizable again.
