Ulm & Neu-Ulm

Linked and yet divided by the river Danube: the old former Free Imperial City of Ulm in Baden-Württemberg, and the new city of Neu-Ulm in Bavaria. Both are well worth a visit: Ulm’s historic Fishermen’s Quarter, the world-famous Gothic cathedral with the highest church spire in the world, the old lanes and squares; and Neu-Ulm with its unique panorama of the Danube and beautiful parks and gardens. Together, the cities form a major cultural centre with many museums, e.g. the Museum of Bread Culture or the Museum Ulm with its collections of important masterpieces from medieval times onward, modern sights like the the ‘New Centre’ and with outstanding shopping facilities.

Historical sights
Historical sights
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.
 
Modern sights
Modern sights
The historic Minster, the prestigious town hall and the old market place form a striking contrast to the modern buildings in the Neue Straße (“New Street”), the white townhouse and the glass-walled central library that has the shape of a pyramid. Ulm gave its city centre a new design with some interesting highlights.

Around Ulm
Around Ulm
'In Ulm, um Ulm und um Ulm herum' – (In and around Ulm) is a classical tongue twister and it is obviously primarily about Ulm, but also about its surroundings such as the caves of the Swabian Alb, the baroque churches of Upper Swabia, romantic towns in Bavarian-Swabia or the “Allgäu” are all well worth a visit.
