Although Tübingen’s old town has many historical sights to offer, for example from the Middle Ages, the city on the Neckar has a lively and cosmopolitan atmosphere. As a university town, Tübingen is home to an average of 29,000 students from all over the world, who shape the cityscape just as much as the historic buildings. Stroll through the winding streets of the old town and let this unique combination of urban flair and medieval small town take effect on you. Numerous restaurants, cafés and small shops invite you to linger and browse. A tour on one of the punting boats across the Neckar from the landing stage at the Hölderlin Tower is also something special.
