What are the Trier Underworlds?
The “Trier Underworlds” are a state project with which the city of Trier, as one of two cities in 2018, launched the profiling competition “Culture | Regionality | Tourism ”from the Rhineland-Palatinate Ministry of Economics. The “Trier Underworlds” were able to convince the jury with their innovation and authenticity: For the first time, 28 underground and nine above-ground venues will be staged together with 22 cooperation partners in a joint three-week festival (planned and organized by Trier Tourismus und Marketing GmbH).

When will the Trierer Unterwelten 2022 take place?
The event period extends from October 28 to November 19, 2022. During this period, visitors can expect a varied program of guided tours, theater productions, art exhibitions, readings, cinema screenings, concerts and culinary delights as well as a separate children's program as part of the festival.
