Ulmer Münster (Ulm Minster)

Often mistaken for a cathedral, this is tallest church in the world!

The Ulm Minster, the ‘Ulmer Münster’ in German, was built from 1377-1891. It is the tallest church in the world, with a steeple that measures 161.53 meters and contains over 750 steps! Since it is a brilliant example of Gothic ecclesiastical architecture, it is often falsely described as a cathedral, although, it is in fact a church, as it has never been the seat of a bishop.

Visitors can climb up to the top level at 143m, where they get a fantastic view of Ulm and Neu-Ulm; if you’re lucky and get clear weather, you’ll even be able to see the Alps.
