Ulmer Munster

The World's Tallest Church Steeple!

overcast 60 °F

We decided to visit the city square more today even though its a German holiday. There were 10 of us in all between the 7 of us form Kettering, and then the three girls from Deaborn, Greece and China. With museums also open on holidays, we went to the Ulmer Munster Church which has the worlds tallest church steeple at 161 meters above ground. We went inside and look around at the couple thousand year old architecture designs. I took a lot of pictures, so keep an eye out for those soon.

You could also pay to walk the 146 meters to the tallest point the stairs could take you. My thighs were on FIRE! It was an intense workout. We got some very good pictures all the way up and you could see for multiple miles in every direction.

The Ulmer Munster is a feat of engineering and architecture. With the buttresses on each side, the stone work and carvings as well as the 786 steps that lead to the top. Totally worth the 2 euro to climb to the top and say that I have visited the church with the world's tallest steeple. Now, how many people can say that?
