    In the 14th cen­tury, the parish church of Ulm was lo­cated out­side the walled city. The burghers of Ulm de­cided to erect a new church within the perime­ters of the city and to fi­nance the costs of build­ing it. In 1377 the foun­da­tion stone was laid.

The church it­self was barely dam­aged. How­ever, al­most all the other build­ings of the town square (Münster­platz) were se­verely hit and some 80% of the me­dieval cen­tre of Ulm was de­stroyed.
