  • unspectacular defensive Tower of the old town fortifications, not unlike in organising other cities also, and certainly no reason to visit Ulm, but if there is...

  • Is the prospect of Ulm! This wicked spell of the snooty Ulmer still finds its equivalent in the fact that you can enjoy the most beautiful view on the executioner's Tower by the Bavarian Bank. He is surrounded by a lovely gable series of medieval half-timbered houses, and it allows access to the Bank of the Danube with its wide archway. It is, therefore, part of the city wall, hugging Ulm's old town. As Pisa's Tower, it has become skewed by the uneven decline of fundamental piles. According to the legend the gleaming Ulm Metzger, in the original tower of the prison for fraud to accused, before the high be fled enraged judges into a corner, and have solved the dilemma with their weight. Such anecdote is funny, but the tower itself also boasts a fun feature. The roof tiles are quite original and especially when the weather is the iridescent glaze in all colors, green prevails. If you follow the steep Street to the Danube from Ulm's Town Hall, they inevitably come to the tower. Behind it you will find a wide stone staircase. If you are already tired rise to the top and you can relax in one of the Cafés on the city wall. Views from here the river - and the New Ulm building sins from the 70's... a special living colossus. And perhaps understand the arrogant Ulmer with its sassy mouth.

  • The Metzgerturm in Ulm is a still preserved city gate of the medieval town fortifications on the Danube. The square brick tower was built with pointed arch Gates around 1340 as the outlet of the Hohenstaufen fortification to the previous city Messanceye. The upper floor is completed by a steep hipped roof with overhanging arch. At a height of 36 m the executioner's Tower is inclined to the North West, to 2.05 m which corresponds to an angle of 3.3 ° (as the comparison of leaning tower of Pisa: 3.97 °). Cause is a subsequent soil reduction of the marshy ground. According to legend the Tower tilt this there locked corpulent butcher from fear of punishment due to inferior goods in a corner crowded together as the angry Mayor entered was created.
