During my few days of holidays, I had the chance to visit one more beautiful city around Baden-Württemberg, the city of Ulm, located on the Danube riverbank.

The city was founded around 850 and was a free royal city until it was controlled by the kingdom of Württemberg, in the 19th century. Nowadays, it is an economic centre due to a diversity of industries and hosts an important university, the University of Ulm.

Internationally, Ulm is famous for having the church with the highest tower in the world (approximately 161 meters), the gothic cathedral Ulmer Münster, built between 1377 and 1545, and the birth city of Albert Einstein.

Furthermore, there is a beautiful park where, during summer, locals and tourists take a sun bath. From this place, it is possible to see the big walls of the city and some big gates and towers built during the medieval ages. All of them are restored.

Another interesting attraction is the enchanting Fischerviertel, the Fishermen’s neighborhood, a region in the centre of the old town, with typical houses, snaky streets, bridges, water channels, restaurants, and stores…It is an authentic medieval village and remembers a bit of the Netherlands!

The city of Ulm is another vert great place around the region of Baden-Württemberg which deserves a visit. Gute Reise!
