Ulmer Münster, Ulm

4.8
#1 of 38 in Things to do in Ulm
Ulmer Münster, built in 1377, ranks as the tallest church in the world. The 161.5 m (530 ft) tall steeple is a fusion of Gothic and later styles. That's because it took a long time to complete. Climb the 768 steps to the top of the tower if you'd like to look out over Ulm, Neu-Ulm, and even the Alps. The stairs to the viewing platform are quite steep. Those with mobility issues may want to skip the climb. Everyone can enjoy the church's intricate interior architecture. The nave, sculptures, stained-glass windows, and a series of grandiose oak pews are especially impressive. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Ulm holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Ulmer Münster and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Imposing structure, free visit (unless you want to climb the Tower), the Interior is bare as the reformed churches. There were large panels explaining why reform and of the pulpit in the middle of the Church, but only in German.

  • Went up the tower with kids 6 and 3 (who we carried up as well as down almost the entire way) and after that couldn't walk for 5 mins, you think the way up is tough, but you get through it, bit it's t...  more »
  • One can climb the stairs over 700? And enjoyed easier than I thought but was caught have been the central pillar on the spiral staircase as I walked up. Looking down from a high tower, upper floor, the end is often think is this Cathedral is really climb to the top. Passing the last accomplishment of strict difference between tiny and narrow stairs and blowin' in the wind at the top of the tower is the best. Not so much presented in Japan is absolutely recommended.

  • The Ulmer Münster is a great church. It is the church with the highest tower of a church in the whole world. This church is rated at the number 8 attraction in Germany and that is what it really is. You can go to the top and the view is really great! Everyone should visit this nice church.
  • If your someone who loves churches and old medieval architecture then your in for a treat. Although, I strongly recommend a guide who can explain things, but it's not necessary if you just want to enjoy to view. Climbing the tower part, well if you do a little sports or are active only then dare to go up, it's surely worth the effort. You'll have levels to enjoy views and take a break.
  • The tallest church in the world has got to be something! Was lucky to stay in Ulm for 2 years and witness this gorgeous church again and again! It is indeed beautiful from outside and a striking art marvel from the inside. Has a great historic significance with a deep story along with its construction. Probably the most important place to see if in Ulm.... The top of the steeple can be climbed...780+ stairs to do so but believe me...the view from the top is more than worth the effort! Go on a decently sunny day and you will see the Alps too!
  • Very beautiful. I would suggest anyone within 1 hour to come visit. Entrance is free unless you climb to the top which is 750+ stairs and cost five Euro per adult. Very, very beautiful!
  • This is a wonderful Cathedral to visit. Beautiful art, gargoyles and windows. Climb the highest church tower in Europe.
