Ulmer Münster, Ulm

Architectural Building Religious Site
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.

  • The tower is spectacular and inside the Cathedral is superb. The very beautiful stained glass (only surpassed by the Cathedral of León).

  • Still the world's highest Church. So fascinating and sumptuous, inside and out. I suggest you see with night lighting. Inside, the church tower ladder, you can see all the Ulm. But the stairs are so tight, you won't stand with an area to rest. Is it worth it if you ask. DEFINITELY!

  • Together with my girlfriend to this beautiful old church. Unfortunately I stayed down. (fear of heights) And is my girlfriend climbed to the top. More than 700. A beautiful view

  • Ulm Minster is an incredible cathedral. I would encourage anyone visiting the region to make a day trip to Ulm to visit this marvel of architecture in the heart of the city. For 5 euros (and a hefty climb up the building), you can go all the way to the top of one of the tallest religious structures in the world. The cathedral itself is breathtaking and worth a visit even if the climb is too much.
  • So huge and big, such wow, never saw something like that. Great church
  • A magnificent piece of architecture with beautiful and intricate sculptures. A definite must see spot for visitors.
  • This was the highlight of a trip to Germany I took with my wife. Beautiful architecture and an amazing view from the top. If you're in shape, climb it!
  • Beautiful historic church that is the tallest in the world. The view on the climb is obscured by mesh wire fencing which is not great. In winter the top of the climb is not open. Major credit cards accepted (minimum spend required).
