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.

  • If you love churches and ghothic architecture then your in for a treat. Entrance is free. Although, I strongly recommend a guided tour to understand historic significance, it's not necessary to enjoy to view. Climbing the tower part, well if you do a little sports then it's relatively easy to climb, it's surely worth the effort. You'll have levels to enjoy views and take a break. There is a museum shop to buy souvenir upon your exit.
  • An absolutely amazing church filled with fine examples of gothic architecture. The towering church spires in the front are so tall they look as if they're going to fall.
  • 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.
  • Such a beautiful church, couldn't visit the last deck platform due to ice but I will definitely come back during summer!
  • 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.
