The university of city of Ulm lies on the on the Baden-Württemberg side of the river Danube, its twin city Neu-Ulm lies on the Bavarian side. It’s a genteel place, even if the likes of Daimler, and Siemens have large presences here, and the makers of James Bond’s PPK gun, Walther are based here too. Ulm Minster towers over just about everything, sporting as it does the world’s tallest steeple, a massive 530 feet, and 768 steps to the top. No, I was not tempted to climb it!
Ulm is the birthplace of the greatest scientist of all, Albert Einstein and is where the founders of the White Rose movement, siblings Hans and Sophie Scholl were brought up. The, Die Weiße Rose movement was a non-violent resistance group to the Nazi regime that distributed leaflets calling for the overthrow of Hitler between 1942 and 1943, until the group were arrested, tried and beheaded. A memorial is to be found on the Münsterplatz commemorating the Scholls’ sacrifice.
