Getting There by Plane
Ulm doesn't have its own airport. Travelers to Ulm can first arrive to either the Stuttgart International Airport (IATA airport code: STR) or the Munich Franz Josef Strauss International Airport (better known as Munich Airport, IATA airport code: MUC). The Stuttgart Airport is about a 50 minute drive away from Ulm, while the Munich Airport is a longer drive at around 90 minutes. Both airports have several transportation options to reach Ulm ranging from bus to private shuttle to train to taxi. Select the one that is more convenient to you.
Getting There by Car
Ulm is located right on the intersection of the A8 and A7 highways. Just like in any other European country, it is a good idea to have an international driver's license because it is a widely accepted driving permit in Germany. When planning your trip to Ulm, include in your list applying for this special permit at your country of origin.
