What we celebrate
Ulm celebrates the birthday of Albrecht Ludwig Berblinger! On June 24, 2020, he would have been 250 years old: a brilliant and risk-taking inventor from Ulm. Better known as "Schneider von Ulm", he went down in history with his failed flight attempt in 1811. With the anniversary celebrations the city of Ulm honors his life's work and in addition sets the focus on the topics of innovation, courage and need of an open minded community for changes. Numerous events and cultural offers invite you to celebrate with us. Please note that the program has been postponed due to the corona pandemic and has been repeatedly adapted to current regulations. Nevertheless, the city of Ulm is working on the implementation of remaining events, always considering the current Corona regulations. So please note, that there might be further schedule changes. We kindly ask for your understanding! The original program can be found here: Berblinger program (19,91 MB, pdf), which gives you a good overview.
