Fortress Day Ulm 2023

Fortress Day Ulm


For the 11th time, the "Day of the Fortress" will take place in Ulm and Neu-Ulm on Sunday, 4 June 20232. This day is organised by the Förderkreis Bundesfestung Ulm e.V. (Ulm Federal Fortress Association).

This association offers regular guided tours throughout the entire city area in the otherwise closed grounds of the "largest preserved fortress ensemble" and explains the historical and structural contexts of the fortress, which was built from 1842 to 1859. Because numerous associations and tenants of the vaults also participate with a programme of their own design, a colourful mix of events is created with something for everyone and every age group.

One focal point will be the construction measures started by the city of Ulm for the use of the Wilhelmsburg, which are being funded by the federal government.
