I've been to Ulm and the Munster several times. Having been born in Ulm and my parents married in the church this place has always had a special place in my heart. As the church is now Protestant, it's not one of the more ornate churches you can see in Europe, however the sheer size makes it worth the visit.... More

It's a great cathedral in the middle of a huge munsterplaz. The front door is under restoration so the entrance is thru a side door on the right. A tourist information office is located at the plaza to the right of the cathedral. If you're driving the Rathaus parking is the closest and most convenient one.

The tallest spire in Europe and a magnificent cathedral well worth making a detour for. There was a beer/wine? festival going on adjacent in August when we were there and looks as if regular events are held.

What can I say. A must see built over 500 years ago only finished just over a hundred years a go. This gothic cathedral in the shopping hub of Ulm is magnificent. If you fit climb to the top. Or listen to the glockenspiel.

Worth seeing in good weather for the magnificent views, and if you´re fairly fit, hiking up goodness knows how many steps up the tower - a definite must. Bear in mind, it gets quite busy and the spiral staircase is rather narrow.

Forget about the facts that the Ulmer Münster has the highest church tower on the planet and it is the building with most probably the longest construction time for a church around the planet too (...and therefore you can find almost every architectural style), you have to take the steps up on a sunny day and you have a view...

This is a beautiful old church. You can climb to the top for a beautiful view of the city. Lots of people around, so great place to sit and people watch.

Bring your Stair Climbing shoes! The Bells ring your way to the top and the higher you go the cooler it gets. Spectacular view and a fulfilling Architectural Feeding for your Brain.
