Tübingen

 

Tübingen, located in southwestern Germany, is a university town like no other: The city has some 85,000 inhabitants. 35,000 are engaged in research, teaching, or studying. Tübingen’s medieval old town brings history to life. At the same time, many students and researchers from across Germany and around the world give Tübingen an open, cosmopolitan atmosphere. The cafés, restaurants, and shops in town invite you to spend time in these picturesque surroundings. From this town on the Neckar River there are plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities - The Black Forest and the Swabian Jura hills are not far away.
