Tallest church tower in the world, the historical quarter “Fischerviertel” and river Danube.
Opposite the venerable Ulmer Münster stands the dazzlingly white, modern town hall. In addition to the historic town hall, the city library was built as a glassy pyramid and the modern buildings of the new center stand in the middle.
You will not be bored in Ulm! Ulm on the one side and Neu-Ulm in Bavarian territory combine traditional and modern elements in an exciting atmosphere. Historical sights such as the cathedral with the world-famous church tower, the romantic fisherman’s quarter and the stately fortress, contrast with new architecture such as the Stadthaus or the Kunsthalle Weishaupt. The arts scene is equally diverse, the range extends from the 30,000-year-old "lion man" figure to the splendor of the Middle Ages from Syrlin and Brueghel to the modern art of Warhol, Rothko and Haring.
Festivities within the Danube twin city are lively, highlights include the weekend around the Ulmer "Schwörmontag" with the carnival-like water parade "Nabada" and the "Lichterserenade" (July), the music and comedy festival "Ulmer Zelt" (May / June) and Kulturnacht (September) and not forgetting the Christmas market (Adventszeit).
