By train to Tübingen: Plan arrival
Geographically, the university town of Tübingen is located right in the center of Baden-Württemberg; a three-ton stone symbolizes this location. Life, however, in the idyllic little town on the Neckar feels predominantly light and young.
Sounds strange, but it's really a great thing: If you decide to take a "punting trip" on the Neckar River in Tübingen, you're doing a lot right. For one thing, the trip on the punt - poking is done with a long wooden stick, not by passengers, but by professional poking captains - gives you a great overview of what to expect in Tübingen. A lot of students in any case, because Tübingen is one of the most famous university towns in the country. The spirit in the city is correspondingly young, and the cultural offerings are outstanding.
In addition, you can easily see from the water that Tübingen's small alleys are home to many pretty half-timbered houses. Highlights also: The museum Hohentübingen Castle, a medieval castle with a panoramic view to the Swabian Alb. The Botanical Garden, which is used as a city park for nature lovers and chill out arena. The impressive Neckar Island with the picturesque plane tree avenue and, of course, the yellow Hölderlin Tower, which is one of Tübingen's landmarks. Hospitality is of course not neglected in such a young city. Our tip: In the cozy beer garden of the Neckarmüller brewery, all age groups sit together - and gaze dreamily at the water and the passing punts.
