Only a few more days of sleep, then the Ulm Christmas Market will open its hut doors again. The Christmas market in Ulm benefits from a special atmosphere, located directly at Ulm Cathedral. Ulm Minster, the largest Protestant church in Germany, has been the highest church tower in the world since its construction was completed in 1890. With a height of 161.53 metres, Ulm Cathedral even towers over Cologne Cathedral by a few metres. The Christmas market in Ulm 2022 is open for around a month and offers food and drink and pre-Christmas shopping opportunities every day. Upbeat as well as contemplative music, typical Christmas classics are played while you stroll through the many rows of the market. Sweet smells in some corners, hearty sizzling and roasting in others, scents to buy and give away, handmade and finely crafted. Gifts to give as presents or to give yourself. Christmas markets offer such a lovely opportunity to linger and discover new things. With a hot glass of punch in your hand, such a visit is at least twice as much fun anyway.
