The Leaning House, Ulm

#2 of 13 in Historic Sites in Ulm
Historic Site · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
This crooked 16th-century house, known as The Leaning House, is one of the oldest dwellings in the city and today is used as a hotel. The building tilts dramatically to the south and appears as though it might fall into the river at any moment. No worries, though; the house has been reinforced and stabilized. Brightly colored flowers adorn each of the house's windows, making this an even more photogenic site. Don't leave without a photo this intriguing Ulm landmark.

  • This is worth a quick photo stop when in Ulm. It is a traditional building dated back to the 16th century which is now a hotel. It is known as the Leaning House as it is tilting. Unique.  more »
  • The building is 600 years old. A key hangs from the top of the building to help demonstrate how much the building leans. Definitely something you do not see every day.  more »
