Ulm Minster - the highest church in the world | Germany

Ulm Minster is the highest church in the world, located in the city of Ulm, in the state of Baden – Wuerttemberg, Germany. It is often referred to as Ulm Cathedral due to its great size, but Ulm Minster has never been a seat of bishop, therefore it is not a cathedral, but church.

Ulm Minster is the Lutheran church built in the Gothic style with a rich and unique decor. Its construction lasted from 1377 until 1890. Upon completion, about 320 singers met here and sang.

Ulm Minster is a city symbol. It can accommodate up to 2,000 people. Its length is 123.5 meters and width 48.8 meters. Its dominant is 161.5 meters tall tower, which made it the tallest church in the world. From the tower you can enjoy a beautiful panoramic view of the entire city of Ulm. During the nice weather you can even see the Alps.

Fortunately, during the World War II the church was almost not harmed, despite the fact that all the surrounding area was bombed and more than 80% of the buildings were totally destroyed.
