Tübingen is one of the oldest and most famous university towns in Germany. It is situated about 45km south of Stuttgart and has a population of roughly 85.000 inhabitants, more than a quarter of which are students.
At the heart of the city stands its university which is more than 500 years old. Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel studied at Tübingen University and Joseph Ratzinger (now Pope Benedict XVI) held a chair in dogmatic theology at the University. An honorary professor of the Business and Economics Faculty is the current President of the Federal Republic of Germany, Horst Köhler. Other famous Tübingen residents include the poet Friedrich Hölderlin and the author Hermann Hesse.
Tübingen is famous for its romantic old town, its idyllic sights and its beautiful surroundings. Main attractions include the Town Hall and the castle, Schloß Hohentübingen, now part of Tübingen University. The river Neckar emphasizes Tübingen’s romantic image. Along the river you will find inviting beer gardens or you can go boating in the Stocherkähne, the Tübingen equivalent to Oxford and Cambridge punts.
