Small steps, narrow alleys, and pointed gables shape the silhouette of old Tübingen on the way up to its castle. The Swabian university town of about 90,000 inhabitants and 27,000 students combines the flair of a lovingly restored medieval center with the colorful bustle and typical atmosphere of a young and cosmopolitan student town. Numerous sidewalk cafes, wine taverns, cozy students' pubs, special shops, restaurants, and taverns invite visitors to stroll around and pause here and there. Taking a boat trip in a famous “Stocherkahn“ – the boat exclusive to Tübingen navigated by a long wooden pole – offers a scenic view of the picturesque Neckar waterfront with the famous Hölderlin Tower.
