One of the most interesting places to visit within a short distance of Ulm. A monastery with astounding baroque features Many areas to walkabout and soak in the atmosphere of a monastery of the middle ages. Design features that are truly amazing. An afternoon or morning of moving feelings

When you visit or pass through Ulm take the time out to visit Wilbilgen Abbey. The museum that leads you to the library is nothing outstanding but has some very interest pieces and information if you want to take the time to look through the rooms but the gem of Kloster Wiblingen is without question is the library. It's worth... More

I read that the Wiblingen Abbey Library was one of the most beautiful libraries in the world. It did not disappoint. We did have to pay 4,50 euro each to see the museum and library (plus more if you want to take pictures, you do). We did not care for the museum but spent over an hour looking at all... More

The Kloster Wiblingen is a gem. The Main library holds original manuscripts and the library itself if gorgeous with walls of mirrors and statues.

If in Ulm, take a bus out to Wiblingen to visit this monastery. Don't miss the library. Overly ornate-simply beautiful.

Wiblingen Abbey is stunning, and the library in particular is glorious - as impressive as St Gallen, but without all the tour groups. The museum rooms before you get to the library are fascinating too. There's a park outside, with lawns and trees, where you can walk or just have a quiet rest afterwards No problems getting there.
