We were too tired to walk anymore in Ulm without a break so we went up from the Danube through the walls in search of some place to sit. We stopped at the Zunfthaus der Schiffleute and were very glad we did! The beer was excellent and the food was better. We sat outside and had excellent service. I had... More

Great place for our first meal in Ulm. Beer is cheaper than Pepsi..... Awesome! We (6 of us) had a shared platter with 3 different kinds of meat, noodles,dumplings and vegetables. It was excellent and they would have kept bringing more if weren't already stuffed with the first batch :)

This place didn't look much from the outside, but inside it was rather large and open plan with wooden beams and tall ceilings. Set over several levels, we sat at the top at the back. Really lovely waitress helped us by recommending dishes and made suggestions. The beer was reasonably priced and the menu extensive with good local dishes on... More

There are few tourists in Ulm in March. On the basis of reviews in tripadvisor, I sort out this restaurant for a full midday meal. I was not disappointed. The restaurant itself is charming and well situated. The prices are extremely reasonable; the service, pleasant and efficient. There is an English menu which is important because the staff do not...

Traditional Swabian fare which we enjoyed. Nice old fashioned decor. Our waitress was very pleasant but did fail to mention that the kitchen closed at 10pm so we had to go without desert. Good for authentic atmosphere. We would visit again.

This is a lovely restaurant in the Fisherman’s Quarter serving local Swabian cuisine. We were in Ulm on a tight budget, and Zur Forelle seemed a bit pricy, so we ended up at the nearby Zunfthaus. We split the Zunfthauspfännle between the two of us (€21,80 for 2 pork medallions, vegetables and Käsespätzle). This turned out to be a mistake,... More

We were taken to this restaurant by our local resident friend. She also informed us of the long tradition this restaurant has, her many visits with her family here, the recent change of ownership, and her doubts if it was still as good. As informed in a previous review all waiting staff is still the same. We are quite critical... More

Despite our non-existent German, and the wait-staff's non-existent English, they managed to find a table for this family of four who stumbled in just as they opened for the evening. We came here based on the Fodor's Guide recommendation. Saw the comments here that it was for tourists. They could be right as we were tourists and loved it. My... More

The Zunfthaus has been for some years our main destination for local food. We have visited this restaurant many times, both on our own, with friends and with colleagues. It was a reliable bet to sample Schwabian food and enjoy nice local beer. In the summer you can sit outside and in winter the two level restaurant is quite cozy... More

The restaurant is in an old house in the fishermen's quarter of Ulm. It still retains the old character, in a nice, warm and cozy way. The food focuses on local cuisine, explained on an interesting menu. All what we had was very nice, the portions more than generous and prices modest. What more do you want? Add to this... More
