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.

  • Really how much is written about the Cathedral of Ulm in all Internet sources that make sense to repeat do not see. Just a possible drive in Ulm and enjoy monumantalnogo buildings centuries ago.

  • There is no lift and on. Put fear to stay especially when oncoming traffic is high and descent. For this, you pay a small fee. Above you is with a beautiful view over Ulm. The entrance is worth to enjoy a beautiful view from a higher point since the Church of which is being renovated as a tip on the Wilhelmsburg barracks. Free

  • If you are in Ulm, one must look at simply the Ulm Münster. Already from the outside worth seeing, but also in Nice. The Cathedral square is thus the focus of Ulm. Just great everything.

  • I was very keen on taking the hike of 768 steps in a warm, summer afternoon of July'17. It was a good hike to the top of the world's tallest church. Was a bit disappointed to see all the grills/bars upon reaching there. The entry fee was €5.
  • 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!
  • was a fun stop. i saw it from the highway and made me want to stop and admire. i dont regret the stop.
