Tour through the Excavations...

Cemetery from late Antiquity under St. Maximin’s

The former abbey church of St. Maximin dates from a burial house used by the Christian community in Late Antiquity. Since the mid- 4th century AD a large rectangular complex was erected here, emerging from a private mausoleum, where, in the period that followed, the Christian community buried their dead.

The numerous Early Christian burial inscriptions are evidence of the Christian use of this burial house. Since the 8th century, Trier tradition claims that Bishop Agritius had a church erected here dedicated to St. John, where the bishop and his successor Maximin were to be buried.

Please note!

Sturdy shoes and absolute sure-footedness are required. The tour is not suitable for the mobility or visually impaired. The excavations are accessible exlusively via catwalks where visitors can walk only in single file. Some place require stooping.
