Church is very spectacular from the outside and the inside! Unfortunately we couldn't climb to the top of the steeple due to building work. By the looks of it, the works will be going on for a while but I cannot confirm that.

This is a very stark, gothic church which is very impressive in its size and height. It's almost impossible to take a photo and include the tip and the base of the church. The inside of the church has beautiful stain glass windows, and although plain, is very pretty.

Climbing to the top means you get to see a fantastic piece of architecture and have a workout in one!

A must see if in Ulm, but then again if you're in Ulm, you'll see it regardless because it is huge. You can also climb to the top! Unfortunately we picked a poor day to do it as the top half could not be accessed due to ice.

I didn't get a chance to climb it, but I heard it's the highest in the world. It's great during winter especially when people come for the christmas market in front of it.

We recently visited the cathedral. It was stunning and I can't wait to go back when I have enough time to go in the tower. The inside of the cathedral was beautiful and we enjoyed the Christmas market in the city center.

This amazing cathedral has been once catholic and now is protestant. It is a great example of a gothic cathedral, being the second larger in Germany (after that one from Köln) and has the highest spire in the whole world (data provided by the tourist guide that we hired). Pay attention to the gigantic angel at the entrance, facing the... More

If you have any interest in Medieval European history, architecture or religion and spectacular views will all enjoy visiting the Muster Cathedral. Allied bombing purposely avoided hitting this magnificent structure during the 2nd World War and we should all be thankful that this piece of art and history still stands. It truly fits the definition of "world treasure" or "cultural... More

Climbing the more than 700 stairs to get the view from the top was a bit of work, but well worth it.
