The place was almost entirely deserted so we got to enjoy the grounds and beautiful cathedral in peace and quiet. A nice place to visit to get away from the busy city of Ulm.

This was a bust for us. The museum tour is only offered in German, so that was off the table. That left just wandering around. The church was elaborate and quite beautiful.

The Abbey is really cool, but the Library will blow you away. Make sure you ask for the English tour guide. Its a hand held device that gives you a tour in english. You have to ask for it they did not offfer.

The inside will have you in awe of the ornate details and magnificent artwork that makes you stare in amazement. There was a wedding at the time of my visit.

Simply amazing!! America was still undiscovered and these guys had a Library!!! Now one can understand why Europe was the birth of civilization! Ask for your english guided tour at the entrance. Worth it! And while at it visit the church right next to it!!

The beautifully ornate library is the main draw here, and it definitely did not disappoint. The audio guide in English (included in the cost of admission) was thorough and very helpful in explaining all aspects of the library. The basilica (main structure as you walk...More
