Ulm is situated on the northern banks of the Danube where the Blau and Iller Rivers meet. This buzzing city is a delightful blend of modern and historical architecture. Just on the other side of the Danube is the metropolitan of Neu-Ulm; it is its own separate municipality and not to be confused as being part of city of Ulm. In fact, these two cities belong to different states from one another. What better way to get to know Ulm and the state of Bavaria than with a car hire from Auto Europe?
The A7 and A8 motorways cross just outside the city of Ulm. This makes Ulm an ideal location to hire a car with Auto Europe as it has easy access to 2 major highways. Head east on A8 to get to Munich, or drive north on A7 to visit Würzburg.
The most striking characteristic of Ulm is the Ulm Minster's steeple which soars high into the city's skyline. Standing at 161.53 m, it is the tallest steeple in the world. Another interesting claim to fame for Ulm is that this was the birthplace of Albert Einstein. Unfortunately, Einstein's home was destroyed during WWII, but there is a memorial that can be visited at the site where his home stood.
Make sure to visit the old Fischerviertel (fishermen's quarter). This is one of Ulm's most charming districts, and it proudly displays half-timbered houses and narrow cobblestone streets. An interesting, prominent historical building to see in the fishermen's quarter is the Schiefes Haus (the Crooked House). It was constructed during the 16th century as a private home, but today it is used as a hotel. As one can imagine, given this structure's name, the building is undeniably askew.
