Amazing view from the Munster!!!

Visiting the Ulm Munster is the main reason to get to Ulm. The effort to get on the top is really worth it!

The Munster deserves a visit. Internally is very suggestive: you can esilyimage how it was centuries ago (even more suggestive!). There is also teh Istraelfenster (over the occidental door) that reminds us of the Shoa. This place has seen so many events in these centuries, so many bad/happy/sad/sunny days... and even makes you feel protected, you can feel the History... More

It's a long way up and not for the faint hearted or infirm! But when you get to the top what an amazing view of the town and the surrounding hills

This beautiful building is the best reason for visiting Ulm. It is a tall, slender Gothic building of great sophistication, and even a novice architecture visitor is going to be impressed by it.

Impressive. Extremely peaceful and welcoming feeling in this huge church. A single stone mason company has been responsible for this building from the construction in the 13th century to the present day restaurations.

This cathedral spire - the tallest in the world - was the reason that I wanted to visit Ulm and the 748 steps up were well worth the views and the feeling of satisfaction gained from reaching the top. We went early evening as the city cooled down a bit and felt it was worth every step. The cathedral itself... More

It's about 780 stairs to climb but worth the view from the top. 5 Euros for the climb. A little windy so pack your windbreaker.

We visited this church while the exterior was under renovation, so the entire right side was covered by scaffolding. However, the church is still jaw-dropping to see from both the outside and inside. While the other three people in my group paid the €5 fee to climb the tower, I walked around the inside and explored/took pictures. The tower climb... More

The Munster has the tallest steeple in the world if a person is interested in climbing over 1750 steps. There is plenty to see at ground level. I was most impressed with the 15th century wood carvings and busts. Organ concerts are regularly scheduled for a nominal price. (I paid 8 Euros for a dynamic presentation of Bach and more... More

What you have to do is climb up the tower, it is only 768 steps up!! Fantastic views over the city and a great impression of the size of the building.
