Due to its legacy as a free imperial city, Ulm has numerous sites of historical interest. The best known is the Gothic Minster, which boasts the highest church tower in the world. Another nearby attraction is the historical town hall with its lavishly painted facade.
The “Auf dem Kreuz” quarter and the Fishermen’s and the Tanners' quarter, which are all part of the historical part of the town, have been faithfully restored. Making a tour of the old city centre is a must-do when you come to Ulm. You will be amazed by its traditional half-timbered houses, narrow alleyways, the many bridges crossing the River Blau and the beautiful decorations made by the residents.
