Fischerviertel (Fisherman's Quarter)

Beautifully restored artisan area of the city with cobbled alleys and timber-framed houses.

Ulm’s ‘Fischerviertel’ (fishermen's quarter), is an historic craftsmen quarter of the city, with half-timbered houses, cobblestone alleys and little footbridges, and is a definitive must see whilst in the city. In the 1970s, the whole quarter was beautifully restored.

The highlight is the ‘Schiefes Haus’ (‘crooked house’; Schwörhausgasse 6), a small, timber framed 14th century house, that was extended and converted over the years. The leaning position is due to extremely wide, sloping supporting beams, which extend over the river “Blau”. It was completely renovated in 1995, and has since been used a hotel.
