The Leaning House, Ulm

4.4
#2 of 12 in Historic Sites in Ulm
This crooked 16th-century house, known as The Leaning House, is one of the oldest dwellings in the city and today is used as a hotel. The building tilts dramatically to the south and appears as though it might fall into the river at any moment. No worries, though; the house has been reinforced and stabilized. Brightly colored flowers adorn each of the house's windows, making this an even more photogenic site. Don't leave without a photo this intriguing Ulm landmark.

  • I would go in there happy times! From the outside really wrong - everything wrong and crooked. Definitely worth a visit.

  • It’s an old home typical of the other houses around it. It’s just the most slew of all of them. There are tours of the hotel at specific times. The tour includes coffee and cake.  more »
  • An interesting little attraction I stumbled on whilst wandering around Ulm. An old house hanging over a waterway that has been leaning for a long time. Its now a hotel and an attraction as such.  more »
