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.

  • Gigantic and towering over the square. This dome gathers outside the magnificence of architectural forms and sculptures and within the night of the Gothic. Organ that spreads its music and you dive into another reality.

  • I lived in Neu Ulm from 1978 - 1981. I had climbed the stairs about a dozen times. A magnificent views that I still remember today.
  • History, art and view of the city. Here you get everything from Ulmer and you won't regret all those 768 steps to reach the top.
  • Beautiful. Must visit if you are in the area. Climb the stairs to the top. Worth the time and effort.
  • Impressive building carefully painted and modelled with ornaments and statues. You can spending hours to discover everything. Don't forget your goggles.
  • It is a must-see in Ulm. The views from the top are spectacular, and I could see the Alps due to the fine weather. The church was also beautiful, with nice organ music.
