Ulmer Münster, Ulm

(4.8/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
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. Ulmer Münster is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Ulm Edition.

  • Ulm is a wonderful city to visit and Munster is difficult to omit in the heart of Ulm. The tallest church in the world, very large one, magnificent Gothic architecture from the beginning of the eponym...  more »
  • After strenuous climbing of stairs, you are rewarded with a gigantic views in the wide surrounding area up into the mountains. Also for Ulmer every year at least once a rewarding ascent.

  • Super big and colorful and active/busy/exciting/wild colors...I've never been in a church whose stained glass threatened to send me into a seizure. Just, unbelievable. Beautiful. Impressive on a scale that made me feel like I was actually catching on fire for having deigned to enter its sanctuary.
  • The view is absolutely great. But I really feel like this church loves money so much........ Vending machine for ticket selling, gate for ticketing scanning, donation even with EC card...maybe I feel it wrong but it seriously not a religious place anymore. Anyway. Ticket up to tower is 5 Euro, reduced price for 3.5 That machine didn't exchange my money back and I had to go to the counter in the gift shop. The lady is kinda accused me a liar and said it never happened before with a ridiculous judging face. Like I would steal their 50 cent for God sake
  • A beautiful church and a great workout to climb to the top. You're rewarded with a gorgeous view of the city.
  • If your legs still strong enough to go up on the top, you will get the top view of the city. It's quite high and narrow stairs, please consider the members to go becuase if you are on the last position with the most quick steps, it will not make you more faster than the first one.
  • Ran to the top in 1985. I miss this beautiful place
