The exterior was under scaffolding during my visit. The interior is is huge with so much natural light. A huge amount of ornamentation is in here that takes time to see & understand. The Einstein Window & the Israel Window are worth seeking out to admire the stunning stained glass depictions. They are both close to the shop.

The last time I was in Ulm was with my father in 1960; at the time I did not fully appreciate the city. In November 2016 I returned to Ulm with my wife for the sole purpose of visiting the tallest church in the world. We traveled by train from Munich. We were not disappointed. This is truly an impressive... More

The Ulmer Munster is one of those impressive cathedrals where one feels tiny, it is quite impressive to see. Downside: as one of the main attractions there it is quite "flooded" with tourists, so pick the time you go there carefully if you want to avoid the masses.

Ulm is a lovely city and a visit to the Minster is a must-do. It is compelling enough that I willingly paid 5 euro for a chance to have a massive heart attack climbing the 768 stairs to the top of the tallest spire in the world. What is not readily apparent at first glance is that there are a... More

An incredible work of architecture, and amazingly beautiful. A true testament to German art and workmanship. I am looking forward to many future visits. I was also fortunate enough to see the locals setting up the Christmas market which will open up tomorrow. I will likely come back soon to see and experience it in person.

Although the structure is beautiful, it was under construction and could not be appreciated. However it is surrounded by nice shops and the tourist information center is just caddy corner to it.

The Ulm Munster is a lovely church and well worth a visit in its own right, but as the tallest church tower in the world, its main attraction is climbing it! Tickets are around 5€ a head, purchased from a machine on the left side of the church’s front alcove. Small spiral stone staircases lead up one side of the... More

You can't go to Ulm without climbing the Munster! My wife is a bit nervous about heights and tight spaces but she did make it all the way up to the base of the final spire. The view on the climb up is spectacular and once you are at the top wow! Just be aware that the stairs are steep... More

Wonderful building , partly spoiled outside by some tasteless modern buildings up against the side wall . Said to be the highest bell tower in the world . Inside it is breathtaking . Some great statues and works of art . Sadly we were not able to get into the choir which is its chief glory inside . It was... More

My husband, and the young couple we were travelling with, climbed over 700 steps, to the top of the steeple, in the tallest church in the world. This was something we will never forget!
