We visited this church while the exterior was under renovation, so the entire right side was covered by scaffolding. However, the church is still jaw-dropping to see from both the outside and inside. While the other three people in my group paid the €5 fee to climb the tower, I walked around the inside and explored/took pictures. The tower climb... More

The Munster has the tallest steeple in the world if a person is interested in climbing over 1750 steps. There is plenty to see at ground level. I was most impressed with the 15th century wood carvings and busts. Organ concerts are regularly scheduled for a nominal price. (I paid 8 Euros for a dynamic presentation of Bach and more... More

What you have to do is climb up the tower, it is only 768 steps up!! Fantastic views over the city and a great impression of the size of the building.

Make sure you have some lung capacity, some comfy stepping shoes, and water because this climb takes a while, and you will be winded/worn out if you aren't in shape. I consider myself in pretty decent shape, but I had to take a break at every landing. I also did the climb up and down in about a half hour... More

The highest steeple in the world - other churches may be bigger - but this one is the highest! So climb up the stairs and enjoy the view - often you will see the Alps! The history is also very interesting - so perhaps you can also book a guide that will explain it to you. Enjoy also the great... More

A hidden gem - we did not know it even existed and decided to visit it quite spontaneously. It is totally worth visiting, and although it might seem way too many steps to the top, don't hesitate to climb it. On the top you feel not only a bit proud of succeeding, but also the view is breath-taking. Also the... More

Highest church in the world is a must-stop if you are in the area. Also you should climb up the stairs to have a view over the city and area.

Ulm Munster dominates the town's skyline - and is well worth a visit. Access to the church interior is free - inside is impressive architecturally and a pleasant place for peace and contemplation. There is also an impressive Lego model of the church, and a temporary art installation of a giant coloured planet which has projectors that reflect the movement... More

On our way back from Austria, we saw the cathedral from the ring, and decided to make a stop to visit it. We did good, as it is an impressive one, but even more impressive were the gargoyles outside, some representing animals like elephant, bull, etc... Definetly worth it if you are in the area.
