Having visited more than 100 churches in Europe, I can certainly say that Ulm's Münster is in my top 5. Both its exterior and interior are awe-inspiring. Really beatiful gothic style church, not to say its size is also impressive. Climbing it is a unique experience, do it if the skies are clear, as it is the best activity of... More

The Ulm Münster has got the tallest church tower in the world and it's probably the finest example of Gothic church architecture in Germany. If you are interested in history and architecture, go have a look! It's a very impressive building.

In a word, Ulm Munster is stunning!!! Its proportions are incredible, the stained glass magnificent, and ceiling features are beautiful. My husband took the stairs to the top and captured some absolutely amazing photos, and whilst he said it was a difficult climb, it was well worth the effort. Sadly we were unable to get good pictures of the exterior... More

The Ulmer Munster is always worth to visit. It is an impressive building. You can visit the inner part for free. For climbing up the tower you have to pay a small fee but it is worth to climb up especially on good weather conditions. First you have a great view over the whole city and the area around. Sometimes... More

My family and I went to Ulm as a spur of the moment trip to see the Ulm Munster. It is beautiful! There was repair being done, but as with most old buildings this is to be expected. There was a wedding happening at the same time as tourists walked throughout the back portion of the cathedral. We chose not... More

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.
