Ulm has a lot of dense fog in some times of the year. Especially in late autumn and early spring. Sometimes you can see only 30-50 m far (90-150 ft). The illuminated church looks impressive when it disappears in the fog.

Around the city, there are many statues of sparrows (Spatzen ). Spatzen is a nickname for the residents of Ulm and a symbol of the city. Legend says that, while building the cathedral, the workers couldn't figure out how to get the long wooden beams into the church until they noticed a sparrow entering its nest while holding a piece of straw lengthwise, instead of sideways.

There is a famous German tongue-twister about Ulm: In Ulm, um Ulm und um Ulm herum (In Ulm, around Ulm, and all around Ulm).

The railway station (Hauptbahnhof ) is in the town center, about a 10 minute walk from the cathedral (Ulmer Münster ). Ulm is about an hour from Stuttgart and 1.5-2 hours from Munich.

There are special train tickets called Länder-Tickets for travel within a region, such as Baden-Württemberg or Bavaria (Bayern ). With this ticket up to five people can use all regional trains for a whole day for only 22 € (one person) – 38 € (five persons). Prices may change, so check the Deutsche Bahn website for the latest prices.
