Ulm Cathedral

Ulm Cathedral


Highest church tower in the world

Hardly any other building has characterised the Bavarian city and the region as much as Ulm Cathedral. The absolute highlight of this magnificent building with a capacity of 20,000 people is undoubtedly the church tower, which at 161.53 metres is the highest in the world. After just 70 metres, you reach the first platform with a breathtaking view of the Danube, Ulm and Neu-Ulm. Construction of the imposing cathedral began back in 1377 and lasted a total of 513 years. In the middle of the 19th century, work had to be interrupted for a long time before Ulm Cathedral could be opened after the main tower was completed in 1890.
