About The Barbara Baths - Trier

The Barbara Baths (Barbarathermen) in Trier are a set of ruins of a second century Roman baths complex.

A little of the original Barbara Baths can be seen above ground today, but this pales in comparison to the Imperial Baths of Trier. This is due to the fact that most of the complex was quarried for materials in the seventeenth century.

However, below street level lie a fascinating set of tunnels in which (when open) visitors can view the workings of the Barbara Baths, including furnaces, sewers and the heating system.

The Barbara Baths are a UNESCO World Heritage site. Closed at the time of writing.
