Kurfurstliches Palais (Electoral Palace) Tours

Located next to the Basilica, Kurfürstliches Palais in Trier, Germany is one of the most beautiful rococo buildings in the world. Today it is used by the regional governmental administration. The palace shows visitors the grandeur of the Electors and the Archbishops from the past few centuries. Building began in the early 1600s, and several wings were added over the years. Visitors can see an impressive rococo staircase in the south wing. This staircase leads to the present seat of the District Administrator.

Occasionally concerts are held in the Grand Chamber or outside in the courtyard. The Palace Gardens located outside are well manicured and use intricate patterns. The garden was designed in a Baroque style and has several beautiful fountains and sculptures. Trier is considered the oldest city in Germany, and at one end of the garden, you can admire the Roman Imperial Baths dating back to the time when the Roman Empire ruled this area.

Practical Info

Kurfürstliches Palais is located at Willy- Brandt- Platz 3. Opening days and hours are limited since the building is used by administration.
