Ulm is a city in Germany, part of the Bundesland of Baden-Württemberg (about 100 km south-east of Stuttgart). Its population is slightly above 115,000. Ulm was also the birthplace of one of the 20th century's most famous persons - Albert Einstein.

Ulm was first mentioned in 854 and was declared a city by Friedrich Barbarossa in 1164. Ulm blossomed during the 1500s and 1600s, mostly due to the export of textiles. These centuries also represented the zenith of art in Ulm, especially for painters and sculptors.
In 1803, it ceased to be an "Imperial Free City" and was absorbed into Bavaria. In 1810, Ulm was incorporated into the Kingdom of Württemberg.
In 1938, it again became a "free city" (which means that it doesn't belong to a county).
- The Danube River flows through Ulm. On the other side of the river, there is the "twin city" of Neu-Ulm, a lot smaller than Ulm and formerly a part of it (pop. ~50,000). Neu-Ulm is part of Bavaria.
