Stadthaus Ulm has an extraordinary architecture, curved walls, stairs that appear to be floating in the air, large windows that seem to almost suck the surrounding area into the building.  And there are lions in the basement. Whatever children, parents, and grandparents want to know about this cool building, Silvia Kepler has many captivating stories to tell.

Such as the reason why the Stadthaus is painted white. And why you can see the Minster spire from so many places. And what about the spiral stairs? And if you want to, you can be an architect yourself. Silvia Keppler has developed a model of the Stadthaus that be taken apart and put together in different ways to create a new building.

Admission is € 3,50, € 1,50 for children (and € 0,50 for every additional child)

The guided tour for families on 21 May (Museum Day) is free.

Our Youtube-Channel provides some teasers with Paul Stauber, but seeing it with your own eyes is so much better.
