Sunday morning after my run, Hubby said let’s go somewhere.  That somewhere turned out to be Ulm, Germany.  It was about an hour and ten minutes down the road.

We left our home with the sun shining on a chilly day.  Sunglasses were on!  However, about fifteen minutes before our turn off, a fog fell.  It was strangely beautiful.  We were a little bummed because we were planning on climbing the over 800 steps in the tallest church in the world.  I read that on a clear day the views are breathtaking.  Hubby said he was not going to do all that work (climbing the stairs) to see clouds.  Nevertheless, we had a great day exploring the city of Ulm!

First, the church,  We could not even see the top because of the fog.

Surprisingly, the inside was very light.  Natural lighting, it was very peaceful.

Nice, right?

As we were leaving the church I saw this really cool clock.  Ulm had some interesting clocks.  Here is the first one.

Next up was the Rathaus or the city hall.

Each side depicted scenes from the town’s history.  It was also the sight for clock number two.

Ulm was enclosed at one time with a wall.  It is also located along a river.  We took a walk to see the wall and to walk along the riverfront.

Some wildlife enjoying the weather.  By this time both Hubby and I were getting chilled.  We could tell the temperature was dropping.  There was one more site we wanted to see though!

Along the way we found clock number three and just some great city views.

The Schiefes Haus was built in 1500.  Part of it sits over the water.  It is now a hotel.

Afterwards, we found a microbrewery to have a late lunch.  Fabulous food.

What a great way to spend a Sunday!
