7 Day Itinerary in UlmEdit This
Here is an Ulm itinerary guide for a week that will help you cover all the major tourist attractions around the city.
Day 1- Ulm Minster
Ulm Minster is a must-visit for all tourists in Germany. Set out after a regular breakfast to see this Gothic masterpiece. This 13th century building has the tallest church tower in the world. It also has a beautiful altar and stalls that are famous for carvings of apostles, philosophers and poets. Close to Ulm Minster is the Town Hall or Rathaus, a historic building located in the market square.
Day 2- Fisherman’s Quarter
Fisherman’s Quarter is part of the old city and is another must-visit attraction. The area is filled with courtyards, narrow streets, half timbered houses and waterways that take you back in time. There are also a few small bridges and preserved houses of a fisherman, boatman and baker. Spend your remaining time browsing through art galleries, elegant shops and antique dealers close by.
Day 3- German Bread Museum
Whether you enjoy making bread or not, you should visit this original and unusual museum. Open on all days of the week, the German Bread Museum covers the art, theory, techniques and history of making bread. Close to this attraction is the Butcher’s Tower which is a worthwhile visit too. This 12th century medieval fortification is situated along the Danube. Walk along the pleasant promenade and enjoy the sights of the city to end your day.
Day 4- Dreifaltigkeitskirche Church
This is a tall Lutheran preaching house that has a Renaissance style. During World War II the church was badly damaged. However, it has been completely restored and today most of it is used as a conference and exhibition center while a small part is still used as a church. Head to the Weblingen Abbey, which is a little distance from the church. This is an 11th century complex of structures that houses a museum and is open to visitors.
Day 5- The Danube River
Spend an entire day on the Danube River to relax and unwind. Boats can be navigated here quite easily. Canoes and kayaks are available at the river. This is an ideal way to enjoy the sights along the Danube. Stop anywhere along the river and you’ll not be too far from a café or restaurant to sate your hunger and quench your thirst.
Day 6- Zeughaus Arsenal
Built between 16th and 17th, Zeughaus Arsenal is a complex of buildings. Located on the edge of the old town, it has always been an important part of the imperial city. Although a major part of the complex was destroyed during World War II, the remaining buildings reveal the actual size of the place. The front of the complex has a large Renaissance gateway and events and concerts are held here occasionally.
Day 7- The Town Wall
Take a walk along the town wall for a pleasant way to spend the day if you don’t want to go sightseeing. The wall has numerous exit stairways and entrances and goes along the Danube River. Below the town wall are several gardens where you can sit down and enjoy a relaxing picnic.
