Ulm shares the River Danube with its twin city Neu-Ulm and is surrounded by the picturesque Swabian Alb region. Besides its tallest church in the world, the Ulm Minster, Ulm offers an attractive balance between historical quarters and modern buildings. With the Alpes and the Lake of Constance region reachable within about one hour driving distance, Ulm also provides many interesting possibilities for sightseeing, sports, and relaxing.

Ulm is located in Southern Germany between Stuttgart and Munich. Thus, it is possible to travel from both these cities (and in particular their airports) to Ulm easily and quickly. The same is true for Frankfurt, which has one of the most frequented and best connected airports in Europe.
