Ulm is a major scientific and university centre and one of the most beautiful cities in the country. Ulm is located on the Danube River banks in Baden-Wurttemberg. Thanks to this great location: Lake Constance and the Alps are 1.5 hours away, and the proximity to the Swabian Alba - Ulm is an ideal place to relax.
Ulm is world-famous for its cathedral with the tallest spire in the world. Travellers with high stamina can see Ulm and its surroundings from 161 meters. A guided tour of the Ulm Museum is also an exciting experience. Its archaeological collection includes a 32,000-year-old lion-headed figurine, the world's oldest known artificial sculpture. The Ulm Museum also provides cultural insight into Ulm's historical past and two of its most famous citizens: Albert Einstein and Sophie Scholl. The popular areas of Fischerviertel and Gerberviertel have been beautifully restored and are home to great cafes, restaurants and pubs. There are also plenty of relaxing beer gardens in Neu-Ulm, the Bavarian counterpart of the city across the Danube.
Ulm is a major road, rail and communications centre. Its industries include automobiles, electrical equipment, metal products, garden tools, textiles, and other light industries. The city has many schools, academies, colleges and libraries. Ulm University was founded in 1967 as the "Ulm University of Medical and Natural Sciences" and is the youngest public university in Baden-Württemberg. In addition, the Ulm University Hospital provides patient care and - in close cooperation with the Faculty of Medicine - trains students in human medicine, dentistry and molecular medicine. Sports such as football, volleyball and basketball are also in demand in the city. The city also has one of the largest rowing clubs in Baden-Württemberg - Ulmer Ruderclub Donau.
Ulm presents itself as an old city with its romantic narrow streets, squares and half-timbered houses that retain the character of a small fishing village. Visitors to the town can enjoy the great atmosphere while walking along the Blau, a tributary of the Danube, or take a short break in one of the many cafes. No one remains indifferent after visiting such a diverse city as Ulm.
