Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web
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.

  • The Shiefes haus is the most lopsided of the world, so as to be entered in the Guinness Book of records in 1997 with a plaque hanging on one of his crooked walls. located in Ulm, in the fishermen's neighbourhood, and can be reached by a walk from the city centre where I was to visit the Christmas market in December after a tour with my mom in several German cities. The crooked House as everyone called her hotel: i think the booking times are quite long as it is really quaint. I tried to book in October x December but could not find spare rooms. From all angles you can see the slope marked with ropes, Plumb bobs and levels. In some places the roof slope reaches two metres while the side floor is approximately 1 meter. Very nice to see, unique in the world and especially nice alternative after visiting the Christmas market in the main square of Ulm with the Gothic cathedral which boasts the world's tallest reinforced concrete tower. Congratulations! Double distinction to the city of Ulm
