I went to Ulm on July, 27th. You have to pay only 5,00 EUR to go upstairs to climb the tallest cathedral of the world (with 161,53m). When you get to the top you are faced with one of the greatest view of Baden area. If you're in the location, you must stop and visit this cathedral. It worth every... More

I only had time for the archaeological exhibit featuring the reconstructed Lionman (32,000-40,000) years old and originally carved from a single ivory tusk. Fragments were found in a cave and meticulously re-assembled with an estimated 400 hours of work. Most of the signage is only in German, but many of the exhibits are self-explanatory with careful observation. There are also... More

We had heard about the wonderful collections at the Ulmer Museum, including the "Lion Man", the 30,000 year old sculpture, and the first known zoomorphic (animal shaped) sculpture in the world. We were somewhat dismayed when we came into the museum, and we obviously interrupted a conversation between two employees. The person who gave us our ticket was unhospitable, and... More

for everyone something. the museum is a composed of several houses under one roof. Very local medieval art in superb condition and great expressionist. I am not so sure about the Lion-man, the largest stone age sculpture. But it is famous. Lovely café and gallery shop. Do not miss out to go onto the roof garden, barrier-free view of the... More

Small museum in a modern building. We only visited the ground floor Löwenmenschen exposition around the main attraction, a 35,000-40,000 year old art object of about 35 cm made of mammoth teeth. Nicely lighted, but very limited explanation in English, summary of the German info. Very much worth to spend an hour when you are already in Ulm.

No one could tell us where any of the modern art paintings by Rothko, Warho, et al were housed...only that they have been mved. No one could tell us where they were moved to. Weasked several people and no one... More

I was there this summer attending the biennale, the curator is really nice and the museum itself offer large artshows spaces, the selection of works is also quite interesting and well separated in different areas of the museum ( I have seen my first Rothko there! ) Lovely book shop!

Housed in both old and new buildings, the Ulm museum features a nice permanent collection of the ancient history of Ulm and art from the middle-ages. The newer addition to the museum was beautifully designed and includes excellent gallery spaces. The location on the Marktplatz makes it convenient to see the Rathaus and walk to the Danube.
