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.

Awesome architecture, wonderful interior with beautiful vitros and a huge organ dominating one side of the cathedral. The climb of the tower turned out difficult and strenuous because of the limited space during a frightening circular ascent.I wouldn't recommend it to claustrophobic people or during the summer.

The Munster is well worth a visit if you get anywhere near the City of Ulm. You can feel the history as you walk around the outside or the inside of the church and the climb up the tower, which is said to be the tallest in Germany in some books and in the World, in others, is awesome and... More

I'm not normally one to pay to climb an old tower, but these 768 steps were worth the effort (despite the people who can't read the signs - in multiple languages - that direct you to which stairs are up and which are down. THAT gets a little claustrophobic). There's not much room at the top but the views over... More

Like most old churches, the inside of the Munster is adorned with dozens of priceless statues, paintings and artefacts. There are plenty of people wandering around with that all too familiar look of revelry in their eyes as they admire all the church's belongings. But the Munster isn't all just "wow, look how old that thing is", you get to... More

A beautiful church built in Gothic style, with the tallest tower in the world (aprox. 161 m). Once up on top, you have a unique view over the city. Worth the effort. Climbing to the top takes about a half hour. The interior of the church is also an attraction in itself. Who's visiting Ulm should not miss this cathedral.

I'm not the best with old stone spiral staircases but I managed to get near the top before having to give up. The views are fantastic though. It's a very impressive building too.
