Ulmer Münster, built in 1377, ranks as the tallest church in the world. The 161.5 m (530 ft) tall steeple is a fusion of Gothic and later styles. That's because it took a long time to complete. Climb the 768 steps to the top of the tower if you'd like to look out over Ulm, Neu-Ulm, and even the Alps. The stairs to the viewing platform are quite steep. Those with mobility issues may want to skip the climb. Everyone can enjoy the church's intricate interior architecture. The nave, sculptures, stained-glass windows, and a series of grandiose oak pews are especially impressive. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Ulm holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Ulmer Münster and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • An originally cathilic church, built in a time were the city had less citizens than the church can hold. Climb the church tower, it is the highest in the world and you will have a lovely view over the surrounding area. If you are lucky you can glimpse the alps
