The old town is the picture postcard vision of Germany you hope for. Cobbled streets, timbered houses, interesting shops and cafes. There are a lot of twisting steep lanes and roads though, so bear that in mind. A nice break from the serious 19th century...More

Tubingen is such a beautiful town with tons of charm and character. The population appears primarily young university students so the atmosphere is very vibrant and energetic. We thoroughly enjoyed our short visit here.
