  • T9) The Fishermen's quarter

    This quarter is the most important old part of Ulm, situated at the junction of the rivers Blau and Danube.Enjoy a walk with medieval feeling from the bridges, squares and half-timbered houses of the 16th century.

  • T8) The crooked house (Schiefes Haus)

    That inclined house from the fischermen's quarter (on the bank of river Blau) already had to be stabilized in 1620. It was renovated and secured in its position in 1995 and serves now as a hotel.That house stands in the Guiness Book as the most crooked hotel of the world.

  • T7) Municipal Library (Stadtbibliothek)

    Located on the market square, close to the town hall, the municipal library was officially opened in 2004. It has a pyramidal shape with a ground surface of 28x28 m and height of 36 m high.Take the Kronengasse (towards west) to reach the fishermen's quarter.

    At the end of herdbruckerstrasse you reach the market place with the town hall, the municipal library and Fish Crate fountain.The town hall was built in 1370 as business premises but used as town hall since about 1420. It is richly decorated by frescoes and features an astronomer's clock installed in 1520.Close to it, on the square is the Fish...

  • T5) The river Danube (Donau)

    Walk along the river Donau up stream to reach the bridge. As you can see from the picture, the river banks offer a perfect place to ride a bicycle.Cross the bridge and take herdbruckerstrasse.

    Going south, leaving Neue Strasse, you enter a small rosery and discover the river Danube from a pathway constructed on a wall.The historical city wall was constructed in 1480 as a defense against ennemy. Along the river Danube, it is today a popular walk close to the fishermen's quarter and Metzgerturm (Butcher's tower).

    Entering Neue Strasse, you discover a light grey renaissance building that was the Holy trinity church (1621).It was destroyed in 1944 and renovated in 1984. Since then it's a community centre (Haus der Begegnung), used as meeting place or stage for events.

  • T2) Ulmer Munster (Cathedral)

    As high as 161 m, Ulmer Münster is the largest cathedral in the world. Construction began in 1377 and remained unfinished till mid XIXth century. Building was completed in 1890. It was by then and till 1908 the highest construction world wide.Climb to the top (768 steps) if you can to enjoy the impressing view, at least if the weather is not too...

  • T1) Pedestrian centre

    Leaving the central station (in your back), take the bahnofstrasse (station street).It's a pedestrian and shopping street that leads to "Hirschstrasse" and to the Cathedral.

  • Old Ulm

    Not a particular attraction here, but walking on the small streets of Ulm is a definite must. It is one of the most gorgeous old town parts I have visited. The two hours lost walking on many of the winding small streets and alleys sure gave Ulm a more privileged space in my heart.In this part you will find the famous Austrian-Swiss-German...

  • Ulm Münster

    As I already mentioned in my introduction, the city's main attraction would definetely be the Ulm Münster with its 162m tower. This tower represents the highest church tower in the world. On my arrival to Ulm the weather was very cloudy but at about 10 km before entering the central station the tower's creepy gothic style tower was above the...

  • Cathedral

    The cathedral IS Ulm. You must visit it and climb the spire if at all possible. The interior is spectacular as well and you should allow plenty of time to see everything.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This was a very nice place downtown. I have tasted some excellent kinds of beer here. There is also home made beer for take away in some beautiful large mugs and bottles. A very good place to lose a few hours.
