Ulm

Ulm is a beau­ti­ful town on the Danube whose attrac­tions span the course of his­to­ry. Vis­it the Ulm Muse­um to see the famous Lion-Man, a pre­his­toric ivory fig­ure which is the old­est zoomor­phic sculp­ture. The majes­tic Min­ster, con­struct­ed from the Goth­ic peri­od to the late nine­teenth cen­tu­ry, is the tallest cathe­dral in the world. In con­trast stand the the gleam­ing white mod­ern City Hall and the glass pyra­mid con­struc­tion of the city library.

It also offers a vari­ety of cul­tur­al high­lights, includ­ing the­aters and music venues. The new part of town also offers com­fort­able hotels and well-stocked shop­ping malls. Tra­di­tion­al fes­ti­vals like the Tent Fes­ti­val and the Naba­da Riv­er Fes­ti­val are a fur­ther attrac­tion. For a spe­cial event, you can cer­tain­ly make the 90 km (55 mi) trip in a day, but Ulm is well worth a longer visit.
