Best things to do in Ulm, Germany

Set by the banks of River Danube, Ulm is a German city rich in history and culture. It is located in the state Baden-Württemberg of Germany and was founded around 850. While being known as the birthplace of famous physicist Albert Einstein, Ulm has a variety of reasons up its sleeve to make you visit it again and again. First comes the Ulm Minster which is famous for having the tallest steeple, measuring high at 161.5 meter. Then there is the Crooked House which is registered as ‘The crookedest house in the world’ in the Guinness book of world records. One cannot stop from stepping back in time while walking along the cobbled streets of the Fisherman’s Quarter. The Ulmer Museum and Museum of Bread Culture in Ulm prove to be great attractions for the history buffs. While you can spend the day-time strolling along the city streets, admiring the architecture, you may spend hours together on the banks of River Danube in the evening, unwinding yourself. A few other attractions that are a must-see in Ulm include Rathaus, Wiblingen Abbey, and Stadthaus Ulm.
