Inside Ulm CathedralUlm is the home of the largest cathedral in Southern Germany.  This magnificent work of engineering and architecture holds the world's tallest church spire at a height of 161m. 

Work began on this cathedral in 1377, and was carried on in intervals until 1545.  It took another 300 years to get finished, when work began once again in 1844 and the cathedral was finally completed in 1890.  Today this giant Gothic church measures an astounding 464 ft long and is 159 feet wide.  The massive interior has the capacity to hold 30,000 people.
