Bike Touring Highlight
The fishing district is a real highlight in Ulm. The narrow streets, the dreamy canals with the innumerable bridges leading over them and the old half-timbered houses make this neighborhood something very special.
The fishermen's quarter is also perfect for stopping off. In the countless restaurants, which are partly located directly on the water, there is good Swabian cuisine.

In this district, which was predominantly settled by artisans in the Middle Ages, on the Danube tributary of the Blau, there are still many buildings dating back to that time and referring to them, such as the Garnsiede on the Blue Island, which today, just like the Lochmühle and the Gerberhaus, is a gastronomically used guildhall of the sailors (am historic Fischerplätzle located directly on the Danube, about there, from where, among other things, the Danube Swabians embarked for the journey downstream to their new home countries Hungary and Romania). Also noteworthy are the Ulm Münz, the Kässbohrer house built around 1500 and, adjacent to Ulm Münz, the Schiefe Haus, built in the 14th century, today a hotel that is considered the most crooked in the world. In the vicinity of the fishing quarter were also three landing sites for the Iller rafting, which transported wood from the Allgäu and Upper Swabia and goods of all kinds to Ulm and from there on to Vienna. As late as 1870, 3,000 rafts reached the landing sites on the Danube.

Idyllically situated at the mouth of the river Blau in the Danube, the Fischer and Gerberviertel is Ulm's most important old town complex. Visitors expect an abundance of lanes, little bridges and of course half-timbering in abundance.
Once the home of craftsmen, today restaurants, galleries and small specialty shops have established themselves in the quaintly restored quarter with some unusual offer.
And if you want to know what the Guinness Book looks like the most crooked hotel in the world - its curiosity here in the Fischerviertel is also satisfied.
