Tübingen

Germany

Tübingen has been twinned with Perugia  since 1984.  The city has about 90,000 inhabitants.  It is located in the region of Baden-Württemberg (which includes the Black Forest), 40 kilometers south of Stuttgart and is crossed by the Neckar River.

Life in the city is dominated by its approximately 25,000 students and the university is the most important aspect of the identity of Tübingen in the world.

It is impossible to list all those who have…..philosophized, narrated, written and conducted research in this university.  Who are the three most important?  They have always been a mixed blessing for students:  Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph Schelling and Friedrich Hölderlin!

Few cities in Europe have the charm of Tübingen.  It is a cradle of poets and thinkers and a mirror of a prestigious past.  It is lovingly protected within a living and developing community that produces culture, dialogues with the world and contributes, as in the past, to the civil growth of Europe.

The rich cultural life in Tübingen is particularly fascinating in its theatres, concerts, exhibitions, conferences and international congresses.  When visiting the streets of old town Tübingen during one of the many cultural events, one will have the impression that young people from all over the world flock together in an atmosphere of freedom and tolerance.

The most important tourist attractions are the Rathaus (City Hall) on Marktplatz (Market Square), the Hohentübingen Castle, part of the University of Tübingen and the Hölderlin Tower, the emblem of Tübingen idyllically located on the northern bank of the Neckar River.

A unique way to enjoy Tubingen is a trip along the river Neckar on one of the renowned Tübinger Stocherkahn (http://tuebingen-info.de/stocherkahnfahrten.html).
