Ulm

Hi!  How are you?  Hope you had a great weekend! Did you watch the Royal wedding?  It was nice to be in the same time zone and not to have to wake up in the middle of the night. I still remember waking up when I was little to see Princess Diana and Charles wedding. My favorite part is when the groom sees the bride for the first time. I love that when Harry said to Megan, "you look amazing." It was a holiday weekend here in Germany with Monday off and we just hung around where we live.  While we have had some grand adventures, this mama is tired.  We went to the park and played.  I think the children were just as happy to do that as go on one of our trips.  I am still catching up from the week before and so today I will be posting on Ulm.  Ulm is located an hour and 15 minutes southeast of Stuttgart.  I don't think it gets much attention in terms of a tourist attraction, but I really love the city.  Ulm is known for its grand cathedral and boy is it a show stopper!!  The first stone was laid for the church in 1377 and was completed in 1543.  It is the tallest church in the world until the famous Sagrada Familia is finished in Barcelona.  It stands at 161 meters tall and can be seen for miles away.  Next up Rothenburg, so come on back and see how I spent Mother's Day!

Europe is full of cities that are hidden gems and don’t receive the attention of better publicized destinations.

I have never been to Germany, but I have seen the cathedrals in England. That they are so old and still standing and ever elegant is certainly a wonder. Did you go inside?

I have to admit I had never heard of Ulm until this post. Thank you Kelleyn. And yes "showstopper" is a good word to describe that cathedral.

I can relate to your comment about the kids wanting to play. When we were in Europe for three years, we would visit the most amazing towns, but the kids got the most excited about playgrounds and the hotel pool! Thanks for sharing Ulm's beauty with us!
