County of Neu-Ulm

Welcome to the County of Neu-Ulm

The county of Neu-Ulm is located in the western part of the administrative district of Swabia, bordering Baden-Wurttemberg.

With a surface area of 515.6 km2 it is one of the smallest counties of Bavaria, but with 163,504 inhabitants it is also one of the most densely populated areas. It is made up of 17 communities, including the great county seat of Neu-Ulm, and the towns of Senden, Vöhringen, Weißenhorn and Illertissen. It has been influenced by the densely populated and thriving areas along the valleys of the rivers Danube and Iller, which are a center for industry,  trade and business. Subsidiaries or branches of nationally and internationally renowned companies can be found in the area. In the valleys of the rivers Roth, Biber, Osterbach and Leibi on the other hand, rural and agricultural structures are prevalent.

The great county seat of Neu-Ulm and the neighboring city of Ulm in Baden-Wurttemberg form the center of the Danube-Iller region and are an important transport hub. In addition, the county of Neu-Ulm is also very well connected to the European railway and transport network.

One of the major advantages of the area is its location near Lake Constance, the Allgäu Alps and the Swabian Alp, which can be reached quickly via highway or interstate. But also the county’s cities, market towns and villages offer great leisure opportunities. Indoor and outdoor swimming pools, ice-skating ranks, numerous hiking and cycling trails and five large and well-kept recreation areas with natural swimming lakes and sports facilities for tennis, horse riding or exercise add to the areas attractiveness.

A further highlight of the area is the Atlantis in Neu-Ulm, one of the largest adventure pools in Germany.

A particular gem of the county is the bee museum in the old castle Vöhlin in Illertissen, the only one of its kind in southern Germany. Numerous castles and manors as well as churches and chapels are true repositories for art connoisseurs and historians. Especially worth mentioning is the Roggenburg monastery, a Premonstratensian abbey and one of the most beautiful Rococo churches in Swabia. The archaeological park in Kellmünz opens a window to the Roman past of the county. Up to the year 400 the "Caelio Mons" with its fort held out against the attacks of the Alemanni.
