This impressive area seated 20,000 people when it was in use. You can also go underneath. We walked from the downtown area, and it's not a short walk, but then you can also walk up into the vineyards for a super view.

Seeing the Amphitheater helps to bring alive the events, the games and the killings that occurred. Much more impressive than just reading about a Roman amphitheater.

An example of Arena where the warriors fights against animals and other warriors. It is also well conserved the tunnels and the undergrounds.

We thought it was a little spendy to get in but received an informational pamphlet and actually had a great time, so well worth the fee! We wandered around, climbed to the top while imagining we were back in Roman times, and went underneath to...More

Magnificent Roman amphitheatres exist all round Europe (Ephesus in Turkey, Seville in Spain etc., so this sad exhibit is definitely one to miss. In addition they take your money then tell you there is not much left because it became a quarry which supplied the...More

I am not sure. However it is wide open and here they have a website if you search trier roman amphitheater. I sure hope it helps. You should experience this.
