On the Danube: The Ulm Minster

On the Danube: The Ulm Minster

Student town on the Romantic Road

This vibrant university town is situated on the romantic road between Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg. It is dominated by the highest church steeple in the world. The Ulm Münster was begun in 1377, but the 161 meter high steeple was only completed in 1890. Between Easter and October the “organ music at noon” concerts in the minster can be heard from Monday to Saturday at 11:30. The market with the Gothic town hall and a splashing fountain lies to the south of the minster. Further west the tanners' quarter can be found, where a part of the city wall next to the Danube is still preserved. The many bicycles are indicative of the more or less 10,000 students in the city.
