City of Tubingen

Tubingen, the little big university town. Situated in the central Baden-Wuttenberg area of Germany with 30% of the inhabitants are students.
Small steps, narrow alleys and pointed gables shape the silhouette of old Tubingen all the way to its castle. The Swabian university city with its 87000 inhabitants and 23300 students combines the flair of a lovingly renovated city centre dating back to the Middle ages with the colourful, bustling and vital consciousness of a young cosmopolitan student city.

Numerous street cafes, wine bars and unique student pubs, extravagant shops, exquisite restaurants and cosy inns beckon visitors to take a stroll through the city. A trip on one of the renowned punting boats along the River Neckar offers a charming view of the picturesque
A cutting-edge gallery set against the backdrop of this medieval city, the Glass and Tubingen art gallery puts on exhibitions that surprise and even shock.

In December, the historic town celebrates winter with a six-day Chocolart festival, devoted to chocolates and more chocolates, pralines and truffles, beer pairing with chocolate, cooking with chocolate, even chocolate massages.
