Ulm, Germany Photos

Ulm, located at the point where two rivers join the Danube River on the border with Bavaria, was founded around 850, and over the centuries became a city of traders and craftsmen. Ulm Münster is well known for having the highest steeple in the world. Of note are Ulm's brick city wall, the Blau River residential area, and the Rathaus (town hall) as well as the Museum of Bread & Art and the Ulmer Museum. Although much of the medieval city was destroyed by bombing in 1944, some historic landmarks have been restored. Other parts of the historic center now contain striking modern architecture.
