It is a challenge, but worth the effort to climb the 768 steps up to the top viewing platform. The panoramic views take in the city of Ulm and, on the other bank of the Danube, Neu Ulm. You can often see as far as the Swiss Alps. At ground level, the minster has marvelous choir stalls from the 15th century, with beautiful wood carving.
60 miles/95 km southeast of Stuttgart.
