Wow, this is really big

The Ulm Munster is the highest cathedral tower of the world. We didn't climb on the top but just watched it from the bottom. And yes, it is really big ...

We visited our friends who lived in Memmingen. If we only had to stay in Munich, we wouldn't visited Ulm because it took about 1 hour train ride. Out side just looked like any cathedral, I can't tell it was tall if no one told me.

Do not just stand outside marvelling at the size of the spire, but go inside an experience the grandeur and lightness of the space. Beautiful colours, windows of immense intensity and a relaxing calmness. One does not have to be religious to get a spiritual feeling.

I visited in late April of 2015 and the weather was terrific! It made for the best photos. The church is located in the city center of Ulm surrounded by lots of shops and restaurants. It's definitely a sight to see and did not disappoint.

Make sure you climb the stairs to get to see an amazing view of Ulm!!!! This Cathedral has the tallest steeple in North America and the inside is amazing and it's free. Climbing the stairs costs 5 Euro's.

Such a beautiful building, and an even more amazing view from the top (if your feeling energetic enough for the climb!)

This is a beautiful church and you could spend a lot of time just walking around the churches exterior looking at all the intricate work. The stairwell entrance is located in the gift shop, it is 5 euros a person and I think we paid 3 euros since we were students. I only climbed up to the second viewing station(Horribly... More

Fascinating old city with a lot of architecture; old and new in perfect harmony. The tower of the city cathedral is the tallest in the world according to the cityguide we found at the hotel and as far as I can tell; it doesn't fit in my camera... ;) If you are adventurous don't forget to climb up the cathedral...

The Ulm Munster is the 4th tallest structure built before the 20th century, with a steeple measuring 161.5 metres (530 ft) and containing 768 steps. From the top level at 143 m (469 ft) there is a panoramic view of Ulm and Neu-Ulm and, in clear weather, a vista of the Alps. The final stairwell to the top is a... More

I visited Ulmer Münster in March 2015. The trip was arranged by ULM University. The church was a very new experience for me. As it is too large, specially from the inside. It is freezing inside. You should definitely have a warm coat if you intend to stay inside more than 5 minutes. The architecture is amazing and the woodwork... More
