On our way towards southern Germany we stopped off in Ulm for a break and to find this site. Was almost impossible to find and we gave up. The city of Ulm was probably beautiful at one point but for us seemed a bit scary...More

The "thing" is supposed to represent the time arranged in space to resemble Einstein's birth house! 24 ugly granite slabs!
