Ulric was born at Augsburg, Germany. He was educated at St. Gall Abbey in Switzerland and by his uncle, St. Adalbeo, bishop of Augsburg. Ulric succeeded to the See as bishop in 923, and when Augsburg was plundered and ravaged by the Magyars, he led its inhabitants in the task of rebuilding the city and its cathedral. In his old age, he retired to St. Gall, named his nephew as his successor, and was accused of nepotism for his action. His canonization by Pope John XV in 993 is the first recorded canonization by a Pope. His feast day is July 4th.

In the center of Augsburg stands the old Town Hall, or Rathaus. Completed in 1624, this massive Renaissance building is popular as much for its spectacular interior as for its exhibits relating to the city's rich and fascinating past. Notable rooms include the Lower Fletz with its huge marble columns and vaulted ceiling, and the stunning Golden Hall, or Goldener Saal. Widely regarded as one of the most impressive examples of the German Renaissance, this massive hall with its 14-meter-high, richly-decorated ceiling was completed in 1643. Afterwards, nip over to the 70-meter-high Perlachturm , a 10th-century watchtower with commanding views over the city (open May-October), and the 16th-century Augustus Fountain.
