Last weekend we had Greer & Chris at our place. They are road tripping from London to Italy and Ulm was the perfect stop over. Of course we made them go up the tallest church in the world. Here are some pictures that prove they actually made it 😉

Excuse the poor quality, but my 200mm was at it’s limit. If you want to, you can download the larger version.

And for those that haven’t been to Ulm, this is what the wiki says about the church:

Ulm Cathedral (German: Ulmer Münster, literally: minster) is a Lutheran church, the tallest church in the world, with a steeple measuring 161.53 m (530 ft) and containing 768 steps. Located in Ulm, Germany, the church is not a cathedral in the technical ecclesiastical sense, as it has never been the seat of a bishop. (The responsible bishop of the Evangelical State Church of Württemberg – member of the Evangelical Church in Germany – resides in Stuttgart.) However, it is a famous example of Gothic ecclesiastical architecture and is typically and mistakenly described as a cathedral. After climbing to the top level at 143m there is a panoramic view of Ulm in Baden-Württemberg and Neu-Ulm in Bavaria and, in clear weather, a vista of the Alps from Säntis to the Zugspitze. The final stairwell to the top (known as the 3rd Gallery) is a tall, spiraling staircase that has barely enough room for one person.
