There is a hostel in Ulm because it has always been a very appreciated and important town. Since its first mention in the early ninth century, it flourished and grew bigger and richer, for it was most of the time a center of trade, power, and religion. Still today, Ulm is in a central position, as it has a lot of industry and as a central traffic interchange. Ulm has a lot to offer, not only in economical ways, but also for its incredible cultural value. The town is strongly influenced by its history -- you will find a lot of beautiful and interesting buildings out of each epoch; probably the most famous one is the "Ulmer Münster" (German for "Minster of Ulm"). With its Gothic architecture and the more-than-one-hundred-fifty-meter-high steeple, it is well worth a visit. If you climb the steps up the steeple, you can be proud of having climbed the highest steeple in the world and you will be regarded with an incredible view over the whole of Ulm.

Take a walk through the "Gerber-und Fischereiviertel," the former tanner and fisherman part of the town. It is built along the river and therefore very beautiful. You will find a lot of attractions, such as "das schiefe Haus," which is a very old, crooked, half-timber house. Over the centuries the town also developed its very own style -- justget yourself into the very unique Ulm to try the one of the local delicacies and beers in one of the numerous taverns. Ulm is also the birthplace of Albert Einstein.

Your hostel in Ulm will put you in a perfect location to take a train or bus to a lot of nearby attractions, including the "Blautopf," a place with many legends and tales; Lake Constance, the largest lake in Germany; and of course, the popular cities of Stuttgart and Munich.
