City profile

Small steps, narrow alleys and pointed gables shape the silhouette of old Tubingen on the way up to its castle. The Swabian university town of 87,000 inhabitants and 22,000 students combines the flair of a lovingly restored medieval centre of town with the colourful bustle and typical atmosphere of a young and cosmopolitan students' town.

The town is characterised by numerous pavement cafes, wine taverns and cosy students' pubs, special shops, restaurants and taverns.

Taking a boat trip in a famous "Stocherkahn" - the boat exclusive to Tubingen navigated by a long wooden pole - offers a scenic view of the picturesque neckar waterfront with the famous Holderlin Tower
