As a venerable university town with historical flair, Tübingen is a wonderful destination for an excursion. Stroll through the beautiful old town and the alleys of Tübingen. Stop off at one of the restaurants and beer gardens near the Neckar and admire the world-famous Hölderlin Tower. The punting trips are highly recommended in this context, allowing you to get to know Tübingen in a different way.
Tübingen’s Hohentübingen Palace with its Museum of Ancient Cultures is the only university museum in the world. In addition to 40,000-year-old figurative works of art, historical musical instruments and excavations on the first pile dwellings, the oldest giant barrel in the world can also be found here. Other permanent exhibitions, such as the “Schlosslabor” in the historic castle laboratory, show the importance of the University of Tübingen in the field of biochemistry from its beginnings to the present day.
Those who prefer shopping are also well catered for in Tübingen with its individual shops. The beautiful town hall square with its cafés and restaurants also invites you to linger.
You can reach Tübingen equally well by car or train. You can find more information about the sights on the website of the Tourist Information Office Tübingen.
