Welcome to Ulm


This idiosyncratic city will win your affection with everyday encounters, particularly in summer as you pedal along the Danube and the Fischerviertel’s beer gardens hum with animated chatter. One Helles (pale lager) too many and you may decide to impress the locals by attempting the tongue twister: ‘In Ulm, um Ulm, und um Ulm herum’ ('In Ulm, around Ulm and all around Ulm').

Ulm Private Walking Tour

We shall start our tour with a view of the Town Hall featuring some brilliantly colored murals and an astronomical clock dating from the mid-16th century. The very impressive exterior murals were extended to the older part of the building and illustrate virtues, commandments and vices. Prepare your cameras for our next point of interest, Ulm Minster, the tallest church in the world, and the 4th tallest structure built before the 20th century, with a steeple measuring 161.5 meters. It took around 500 years for the church to be finished and now it’s one of the most important landmarks of Ulm. Close by we will stop for some pictures at The Dolphin fountain. With its complex structure, stems from the 52 inter-crossing jets of water and the reflections of the wet metal this fountain is considered one of the most beautiful fountains from this whole are of Germany. The charming “water display” of this fountain is particularly attractive when floodlit at night. If you thought that the leaning tower of Pisa was one of a kind, think again. We will get a chance to see the “leaning tower of Ulm”, The Butchers Tower that used to be a part of Ulm´s fortifications. The tower leans 2.05 meters in a north-westerly direction, by 3.3° (unlike Pisa's 5.1°). We continue our tour to Fishermen's Quarter, the most romantic part of Ulm. Take a leisurely walk through narrow streets, streams, bridges and old houses. Don't be fooled by the name of the area. The owners of the houses were not some poor fishermen, trying to make a living but merchants and ship owners who made money trading goods along the Donau. The old houses show the wealth of their former owners. In this area we will also reach probably the most well-known touristic attraction of Ulm: the Crooked House. The roof top of this building is leaning at an impressive angle of 9 to 10° over the river Blau and because of that, in 1997, the Guinness Book of Records lists it as the world’s most extremely leaning hotel. The construction of the house – narrow at the bottom, wider in the upper stores - can be explained by its purpose as a building for fishing, repair of nets, and fish storage. There was a boat landing at the base of the house, the upper stores serving as a kind of roof. We will end our tour after crossing the Danube to the Neu-Ulm side with a nice walk along the river for a breathtaking panorama view of the old town.
