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. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Ulm holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Ulmer Münster and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • It is a very huge church. Often I have been to churches which look massive from the outside but small inside. This one is different - it’s huge both out and in. The choir stalls are very interesting.....  more

  • Beautiful Münster with one of the most beautiful windows, although destroyed during WW. It is the tallest Munster in the world with foundation going to only 6 m below the ground. Magnificent piece of Gothic architecture. One can even observe the unique wooden caricatures carved on the benches at the Altar.
  • Definitely worth visiting, only did a short walk through but was amazed. Im sure they have an English language tour. The artistry and historical value are unreal
