Visit Tubingen in 2024

Cobblestone streets, half-timbered houses, and a vibrant intellectual scene make this town a unique blend of old-world charm and modern innovation. Tübingen is best known as a university town, and it's no wonder why. Home to Eberhard Karls University, one of Europe's oldest, the city has a youthful spirit that infuses life into its historic streets and buildings. Wander along its winding roads, and you'll find quaint shops, charming cafes, and bookstores filled with academic treasures.
The old town, or 'Altstadt', is a maze of narrow lanes and squares, dotted with buildings that date back to the Middle Ages. Here you'll find the Rathaus (Town Hall) with its colorful façade and astronomical clock, which is a popular photo opportunity for visitors. The Neckar riverfront offers scenic views and is perfect for leisurely strolls or punting – a local tradition of boating down the river.
Tübingen is also rich in culture, housing various museums like the Museum of Ancient Cultures and the Hohentübingen Castle, now a museum of the University of Tübingen. The town is not just about history and academia; its local culinary scene boasts Swabian specialties like 'Maultaschen' (stuffed pasta) and 'Spätzle' (egg noodles).
