Yes, it is a lot of steps to the top. Yes, the stairs can be a bit tight, especially if you encounter others coming up or down. However, you can't beat the spectacular views all the way up. And you'll get to say you climbed the tallest church in the world.

We went all the way to the top! Was fun to see the Christmas markets down below. The scenery was beautiful and the inside was incredible as well! Got a step workout in that day!! A definite must if you are in Ulm!

I could sit here all day and twice on this church, but I just cannot put it all into words. This is the world's tallest cathedral with 768 steps to the top!!! It took me about an hour and twenty minutes to do but that included the time to take pictures. It is a long trip that takes 5€ for... More

Lovely building, but we felt a bit sorry for it. Seemed in need of some TLC. We collected a leaflet from the tourist office, and sat in the square and read that first.

Off the beaten path, steeped in history and beauty, boasting the tallest steeple on Europe - this gem is awesome (literally)!

While the inside is beautiful and worth a view the highlight of this visit is the climb up the world's tallest cathedral! It's €5 for adults to climb the steep spiraling 768 stairs up, and the last 200 are not for the feint of heart. You'll be going up a steep narrow spiral and have to pass others who are... More

My wife and I climbed the 768 stairs to the top of the steeple on our last visit to Ulm. We finally saw the inside on our second visit. Fabulous. Built sometime in the 14th century. You wonder how people can build something this fabulous....I don't know what other words to use.

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 ...
