The place was almost entirely deserted so we got to enjoy the grounds and beautiful cathedral in peace and quiet. A nice place to visit to get away from the busy city of Ulm.

This was a bust for us. The museum tour is only offered in German, so that was off the table. That left just wandering around. The church was elaborate and quite beautiful.

We just visited the church part. It was beautiful, but not more that many others that we visited recently. The library we heard is amazing and we will visit it next time. Parking is for free. Photo permission costs extra: In addition to the entrance...More

Definitely worth a visit. The library is stunning. The visit includes a short museum detailing the history of the kloster. Its all in German but you can find plenty of information online. You can purchase an audioguide for the library which extensively describes the history...More

The Abbey is really cool, but the Library will blow you away. Make sure you ask for the English tour guide. Its a hand held device that gives you a tour in english. You have to ask for it they did not offfer.

The inside will have you in awe of the ornate details and magnificent artwork that makes you stare in amazement. There was a wedding at the time of my visit.

Simply amazing!! America was still undiscovered and these guys had a Library!!! Now one can understand why Europe was the birth of civilization! Ask for your english guided tour at the entrance. Worth it! And while at it visit the church right next to it!!

The beautifully ornate library is the main draw here, and it definitely did not disappoint. The audio guide in English (included in the cost of admission) was thorough and very helpful in explaining all aspects of the library. The basilica (main structure as you walk...More

I've just seen some photos of libraries - Kloster Wiblingen, Kloster Schussenried, Kloster Ochsenhausen. Wow! Can someone please tell me which is the easiest to get to using public transport? Thanks, Loki.

Surely Wiblingen, as it is located in a suburb of Ulm and reachable by city bus (no. 7 if I remember correctly) in 10 minutes from the central station. Ulm itself is well connected by long-distance trains. An audioguide in English is available and I recommend taking it to understand the complicated content of the frescoes and sculptures as well as the history. The visit to the library is combined with a little museum about the history of the abbey. (Think of me when you walk through as I was...More
