MOST ASKED QUESTIONS IN SUMMARY

F.A.Q.

You decide! We can handle everything between 1 and 50 people. We recommend 10 to 25 people - then there is enough space to consider all of the group's wishes and answer all questions. Keep in mind that the bigger the group the slower we move through the city. But honestly - don't bother about the size of your group - you'll get a great experience no matter how many you are!

As well: You decide! We are very flexible and can adjust the time even instantly during the tour. Everything between 1 and 2.5 hours is possible. Please consider: Our average tour takes 1.5 hours. For two reasons: If we take less than 1 hour we have to leave out that many parts of the city that the connections of everything won't be clear any more. Second, concentration declines after 1.5 hours significantly. But: Ulm has a rich history: There are enough stories to tell to fill more than 24 hours...

Again as well: You dedice! We can adjust the tour very flexible. Normally we start at the town hall and end at Ulm cathedral (Ulmer Münster). As you wish we can also pick you up at your hotel, the main station or the bus parking. We can end there as well. But maybe you want to have a traditional meal at a traditional Swabian restaurant or beer garden and try our Zwiebelrostbraten, Maultaschen or Kässpätzle. Actually - you should at least once in your lifetime. If so, tell us in advance. Depending on your group size we recommend the perfect place for you and reserve places as needed.
