Ulm Cathedral

Ulm Cathedral (German: Ulmer Münster, literally: minster) is a Lutheran church and the tallest church in the world, with a steeple measuring 161.53 m (530 ft) and containing 768 steps. The church is not a cathedral in the technical ecclesiastical sense, as it has never been the seat of a bishop. However, it is a famous example of Gothic ecclesiastical architecture and is typically and mistakenly described as a cathedral. After climbing to the top level at 143m there is a panoramic view of Ulm in Baden-Württemberg and Neu-Ulm in Bavaria and, in clear weather, a vista of the Alps from Säntis to the Zugspitze. The final stairwell to the top is a tall, spiraling staircase that has barely enough room for one person.

Hours: Open 9am - 5:45pm with later hours in the summer. Note that the entrance to the tower closes one hour earlier.

Admission: Adults 4 €, Students 2.50 €, Family Ticket 10 €

There are 780 stairs to the currently highest platform. The rest of 150 stairs almost to the bell tower is currently not accessible, because it is harmful to collapse.
