“great views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

Great views of the old town and beyond. We didn't go inside, but it seems there are exhibitions inside. Anyway, it is worth the climb to work off the ice cream, cake or lunch you may have consumed earlier in the day/evening.

“Great sight”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

It's free and beautiful but not the kind of castle with armor and tours! Great site though!

“Enjoyable way to pass a bit of time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

The castle currently houses an archeological museum, which is interesting, but not English friendly. It's a nice walk from the city center to the castle and the view is quite impressive. It's a nice way to pass a little bit of time, but I wouldn't go out of my way to visit unless you were already in Tubingen.

Walk up and have a nice view over town and country.

“great views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

If you are in Tübingen you definitely should go up to the castle. Make sure to go though the courtyard, up the stairs to the left. When you are up in the upper yard, go to the left for great views over the Neckar valley and then off to your right for views of the Alt Stadt. Then go back down into the main courtyard and through the narrow tunnel that takes you our the back of the castle. There you can go around through another tunnel to the fortifications and a sunken garden where the archery club practices. Very nice!
