Guest in Ulm
22 June 2020
Talking about German pipes and about quality, the city of Ulm comes to mind. Today we were there to get to know the city and visit the museum. Little remains of the important impulse that radiated from this city in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Besides a single pipe in the city museum, nothing reminds of this remarkable industry. The highlight of the day was the evening program, a visit to the collector and pipe lover Günther Merath. As a descendant of an Ulmer family, at a young age he took up an interest in the Ulmer pipe and has been collecting ever since. This is clearly visible in his fascinating collection. What we looked for in the museum in vain is in the cabinets of this passionate collector!
