Ulm

FISCHERVIERTEL QUARTER IN ULM.

Situated on the Danube, the pretty little city of Ulm is a magical place full of canals and quaint medieval buildings. A stroll around the restored Fischerviertel quarter with its maze of winding alleys is a great way to while away the hours. And while you’re there, why not indulge in some window shopping or spend some time in one of the many pubs and cafés. Sounds perfect, doesn’t it? You might even spot some trout in the canals. Well, the name of this district in German does mean fishermen’s quarter!

OLD MEETS NEW IN ULM.

Ulm also has a modern side. The city’s municipal library is simply stunning – its glass pyramid design creates a wonderful contrast to the older buildings that surround it. So, if you’re looking for a great photo opportunity in Ulm, then it should be near the top of your list. What’s more, the library is equally worth seeing on the inside.

Heilbronn

Heilbronn.

Next stop: Heilbronn. The city on the Neckar river, nestled among forests and vineyards, has changed a lot over the last 30 years too. There’s the Experimenta Science Centre, for example, whose impressive building houses interactive exhibits that bring science and technology to life. Touching the exhibits is positively encouraged here! 

HEILBRONN’S OLD QUARTER.

Heilbronn is also known locally as ‘young’ Heilbronn, as so many buildings damaged during the Second World War have since been rebuilt.

Stuttgart

STUTTGART STATE OPERA.

Next and final stop: Stuttgart. There’s plenty of beautiful and well-maintained architecture to admire here too, such as the round building of the State Opera in the Upper Palace Gardens.

THE OLD PALACE.

The historical edifice of this grand palace now houses a modern museum showcasing works of art from the Stone Age to the present. After your visit, why not go for a walk around the palace gardens and discover some of its hidden corners.
