Living in Ulm

Often called 'The City of the Spatzen' after the sparrow that forms the city's symbol, Ulm in Germany offers something for everyone. The city's rich historical and cultural heritage, along with Ulm's exciting cosmopolitan center, create an inspiring choice for expatriate life. Ulm is famous as the birthplace of Albert Einstein, and evidence of this connection can be seen throughout the city. A visit to the Einstein memorial, erected where his house of birth used to stand, provides a fascinating reminder of the life and work of one of history’s most influential scientists. Ulm also boasts an awe-inspiring Minster, a beautiful example of intricate Gothic architecture and style. At over 160 meters tall, Ulm Minster is officially the tallest church in the world. But expat life in Ulm isn't just about sightseeing. InterNations, as a global online network for expatriates, offers you the chance to meet other expats living in Ulm, Germany, and across the world. It's an easy way to meet people, form friendships and make the most out of your life as an expat in Ulm.
