Visitor's Guide

The Ulmer Münster

It has been the hallmark of the city and the region for centuries, and is indeed a synonym for Ulm both within Germany and abroad: the Ulmer Münster. This prominence is mainly due to its tower, which is the tallest church tower in the world, at a height of 161.53 m. But it is not only the Münster that is worth a visit in Ulm/Neu-Ulm, as you will find out soon.

Museum

Almost everyone is familiar with Ulm Minster. However, probably few visitors to Ulm and Neu Ulm realise that the cities also have a large number of noteworthy and interesting museums to offer.

Here, visitors can see, among other things, the sensational ca. 30,000 old lion-headed figurine, art from the old masters and contemporary, world-renowned artists including Breughel, Warhol, Stella and Scharff as well as up and coming fledgling artists.
A good tip: Buy a UlmCard! This entitles you to free entrance to 12 museums.
