    Next to the magical historic city center with the picturesque Fishermen's Quarter, you will find the Ulm Minster with the highest spire in the world. Thanks to its 28 museums, 7 theaters, 5 cinemas, the Donaubad Wonnemar Aquatic Center and the many gardens and parks, Ulm is one of the most beautiful cities in Germany.

    Ulm has become known as an innovative region due to highly sought-after industrial products and important research findings by the University of Ulm. The university is one of the best in the world. It is therefore no wonder that the city's wide range of exceptional educational options attracts thousands of students every year from near and far.
