Amphitheater, Trier, Germany
The Trier Amphitheater is a Roman Amphitheater. It is designated as part of the Roman Monuments, Cathedral of St. Peter and Church of Our Lady in Trier UNESCO World Heritage Site. About 500 meters from the Kaiserthermen lies the amphitheater, which was already built in 100 AD and had a capacity of 20,000 spectators. It was a testament to the fact that Trier was a rich city of considerable proportions, for only such a city was built so prestigious.
However, the design of the Trier Arena differs from that of other facilities. Because of the particularly favorable location at the foot of the Petrisberg Mountain, the Roman builders on one side of the theater could dispense with the laying up of soil there. They used the natural slope for the spectators.
