“Mediaeval astrological clock”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

There's an elaborate mediaeval astronomical/astrological clock high up on the wall outside, and it's fascinating to try and see what it shows - the movement of the sun and moon, the zodiac, the phases of the moon...

“The lower level is a restaurant”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

The Rathaus is famous for its painted walls on the outside. It is next to the city center and also close to the city library. The restaurant is also very good.

“Worth a look”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

This building is truly impressive and totally free to visit. You could spend quite a while wandering around it and enjoying the art- sort of like a gallery on a building. It's been very well preserved/restored and it's definitely worth checking out if you're in Ulm.
Right across the street in the underground parking garage there are free public restrooms.

“Totally gorgeous”
Reviewed May 13, 2012

Go and see what our ancestors were capable of. It is a piece of art and a delight for the eyes like so many other building in this town. Worth a visit.
