Ulm sits prettily on the Baden-Württemberg side of the Donau but don't let this proximity to Bavaria fool you, it is decidedly Schwäbisch, from its cuisine to the Protestant orientation of its most famed sight, the imposing Ulmer Münster. The latter is a church that happens to be the tallest one in the world and the reason most people venture to Ulm. The former is why I went. Well, perhaps not so much for the food but for the beer at the two finest breweries in the city. But when there is beer there should be food and thankfully, in Germany that is nearly always the case. By all accounts mentioned, Ulm is a worthwhile place to visit. It's not likely you'll miss the Ulmer Münster. It is after all more than 160m tall. But do yourself a favor and check out at least one of the breweries. You'll not only get a taste of the non-tourist Ulm but a tasty meal and beer as well.

    I love the old wood-framed houses and the church looks truly impressive. But like you I wouldn't want to miss the beer and food either - we enjoyed a tasty Schwäbisch meal in Berlin (fried Maultaschen even!) and would be very happy to try more :-)

    Hi Richie, glad to see you finally took that day trip to Ulm. My first visit there was on a canoe trip down the Danube, and I have since been back for the opera or just to walk around between trains.

    If I ever come to Ulm I would defenitely climb all the stairs up the spire of Ulm Münster, maybe I would add a visit to a brewery too.

    Now this I call pilgrimage to beery locations :-) But despite the long walks and time to Ulm you seem to have both loved it! The meals look definitely mouthwatering! Haha, and yes, I love your Ülmster term :-)
