Welcome to Neu-Ulm and Ulm!
Two cities – one cultural centre
„In Ulm, um Ulm und um Ulm herum“ – this tongue-twister makes it clear that we are talking about Ulm and also the areas around Ulm, e.g. Neu-Ulm.
Neu-Ulm (Bavaria) has about 58,000 inhabitants and Ulm (Baden-Wuerttemberg) about 120,000 inhabitants. With their three universities, the two cities on the banks of the Danube make an attractive and exciting place to live and study.
Lage und Stadtentwicklung
Two federal states – Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg – and different mentalities converge in Ulm and Neu-Ulm. This interplay promotes exchange and creates dynamism: People usually perceive Ulm and Neu-Ulm as one city in their everyday life.
Ulm attracted nationwide attention in particular due to its blend of historical and modern buildings, created by architects such as Richard Meier and Gottfried Böhm. Neu-Ulm has changed its appearance perceptibly – like hardly any other city in Bavaria: After the American armed forces left, the city has since the mid-1990s successfully converted the former barracks into modern residential complexes, recreational parks and a region of service providers.
