City centre & shopping centre
If you love to go with the flow, the Hirsch-/Bahnhofsstrasse is the address to go to. It is Ulm‘s most buzzing shopping street and one of the ten most popular shopping miles in Germany: There is a great number of department stores, brand name businesses, and specialist shops. If you prefer a calmer shopping experience, you may rather enjoythe shops near Ulm Minster and the picturesque network of narrow streets inthe old city centre. This is another asset of the city of Ulm: its broad and diverse selection of owner-run and very individualistic specialist shops.
The romantic fishermen’s and tanners‘ quarter is located at the banks of the Danube River. Its crooked streets are home to longestablished and very original specialist shops. There are also goldsmiths, second-hand bookshops, and galleries. You can also find pleasant restaurant and coffee shops.
The Blautalcenter, located close to the city centre, is the largest shopping mall in Baden-Württemberg, with 100 shops and restaurants over 37,500 square metres – making it an interesting addition to the Ulm and Neu-Ulm city centres.
