Ulm Water Jousting 2013

Water Jousting Schedule

14th and 21st July 2013 Following a four-year break this traditional event will be back to the old imperial city of Ulm: Since 1662 water jousting has taken place at intervals of 4 to 5 years carried out by the skipper’s association. A local legend says that two Ulm fishermen watched a knight’s tournament, which was held by the monks of the Reichenau monastery situated in Ulm. The two fishermen wanted to do the same but used a barge because they did not have horses. Water jousting is a real tournament on the water with 15 jousters representing historic characters and original figures.

Sunday, 14th July 12 a.m. Big historical parade taking place in the historic city centre of Ulm with guild dances (Saumarkt), Münsterplatz, Petrusplatz, Kornhausplatz, Marktplatz) 3 p.m. Water jousting parade 3.30 p.m. Ulm water jousting on the Danube

The water jousting tournament takes about 90 minutes and takes place on the Danube against the historical setting of the historic city centre of Ulm. Large stands for the audience are set up on the banks of the Danube River. In the morning of water jousting day a huge historic parade takes place in the streets of the historic city centre of Ulm. The parade is made up of jousters and a number of historical groups, fishermen and fisher girls wearing traditional fisherman costumes, horsemen, bands, flag twirling and dancing chorus groups.

Sunday, 21st July 9.30 a.m. Big historical parade taking place in the historic city centre of Ulm with guild dances (Saumarkt, Hirschstraße/Pfauengasse, Herrenkellergasse, Kornhausplatz, Judenhof, Haus der Begegnung) 2.45 p.m. Dance performance at the Marktplatz sq. 3 p.m. Water jousting parade 3.30 p.m. Ulm water jousting on the Danube (Expected) Admission fees Seats are numbered: EUR 12.– (plus advance booking fee) Standee area adults: EUR 5.– Standee area children: EUR 2.–

Ulm Minster For hundreds of years it characterizes the city and region, nationally and internationally it’s kind of a synonym for the city of Ulm: the minster. That’s basically due to its spire, which is with 161.53 m the tallest church spire all over the world. The “Ulmer Münster” is the largest cathedral in Southern Ger many and was built between 1377 and 1890.

Worth seeing

Major pieces of art in late Gothic style such as the famous choir stalls by Syrlin, Multscher’s figure “Man of sorrows” can be visited. Potential ascent to the main tower with 768 steps to a height of 143 m. In return for your effort you’ll get a stunning view over the city and surroundings.

Quite romantic: Fishermen‘s Quarter with river Blau

Middle Ages meet modern times. Wherever you go you experience the charming interactions between tradition and modern times. From the Gothic Minster passing by the Neu-Ulm water tower to the futuristic “Neue Mitte”– “New Centre”

The Old Town The most important part of the Ulm old city is the Fishermen‘s and Tanners‘ Quarter with their old little cobbled streets, bridges and footbridges. In addition to that you can find the historical Town Hall with an astronomic clock on the Market Place. A promenade on the city wall offers you a unique view on the Danube and on Neu-Ulm. On the skirt of the old city there is the former armoury with the Einstein foun tain, a reminiscence to the famous son of the city. Ulm Town Hall with astronomer’s clock The historic Ulm Town Hall is characterised by its opulent frescoes. Built in 1370 as business premises, it was mentioned as town hall for the first time in 1419. The richly decorated astronomer’s clock was installed in 1520. Inside a replica of the “Tailor of Ulm’s” flying machine can be admired in the stairwell. The Town Hall is open for visitors during regular office hours; the admission is free.

been established here. Right in the middle - and directly on a channel on the river Blau - one can find the well worth seeing “Crooked House” which is registered in the Guiness Book of Records as the most crooked hotel in the world. It has also been awarded the monument prize of Baden-Württemberg. City Wall Promenade with Butchers’ Tower The city wall was built in 1480 “amid the swirling waters of the Danube” as a protection against enemy troops. The city wall of today is a popular promenade way which leads along the Danube and the Fishermen’s Quarter past the legend-telling Metzgerturm (Butchers’ Tower) down to the Friedrichsau Park.

Fishermen’s and Tanners’ Quarter Idyllically situated on the mouth of the rivers Blau and Danube, the Fishermen’s Quarter is the most important old part of town. The romantic and narrow alleyways, picturesque houses, bridges and squares give an impression of medieval times. Nowadays inns and restaurants, galleries and small shops have

Strong lines: Ulm Main Library

Ulm’s New Centre On one side you have got the historic Ulm Minster, the honourable Town Hall and the old Market Place – and right opposite the new modern building constructions on Neue Straße, the white Stadthaus and the glass pyramid which hosts the main library: Ulm has remodeled its city center and imposes new accents. According to the motto “Middle Ages meet Modern Times” an ensemble was created which has been accepted not only by architects and construction experts. Quite purposely a collection of architectonically unusual new constructions has been added to the historic buildings and squares. In 2004 the pyramid building construction with its glass surface of the new Main Library by Gottfried Böhm has been opened as a counter face to the adjacent Ulm Town hall and the Market Place.

Weishaupt Art Gallery

On the other side of the Town Hall the “Münster tor” shopping mall and the new building of the Sparkasse – a bank, both designed by Stephan Braunfels and decorated by the Deutsche Städtepreis (Congress of Municipalities) in 2006. Kunsthalle Weishaupt, an Art Gallery, by Wolfram Wöhr was the last building to complete the New Centre ensemble in November 2007.
