The historic Minster, the prestigious town hall and the old market place form a striking contrast to the modern buildings in the Neue Straße (“New Street”), the white townhouse and the glass-walled central library that has the shape of a pyramid. Ulm gave its city centre a new design with some interesting highlights.
After dismantling the four-lane road that had once led through the city, the opportunity was seized to bring modern architecture right into the city centre. In keeping with the motto “Medieval Meets Modern”, several new buildings were erected at the heart of Ulm. They have been acclaimed by architects and construction experts alike.
