When you come from the modern city center to the fishermen’s quarter of Ulm, you might think that time has stood still. Historic half-timbered houses right on the water, winding alleys and old mill wheels tell of the time when the city’s craftsmen, tanners and fishermen lived and worked here. Some of the idyllic buildings dating from the 15th to 17th centuries are now leaning because their foundations are in the water. But this only adds to the special charm of this old quarter. If you follow the alleys, you will reach the Ulm city gate and have a great view of the Danube.
