This building is one of the things make the city even more beautiful. What I thought when I saw this building for the first time was: "Well, I'd be philosopher too, if I lived in that building.".

For me in general, entire Tübingen looks and feels like being in a fairytale. Holderlin's Tower is a small musem, but really nice with a piano inside and nice art works. It offers beautiful views to the river and the Neckar Island. And this house...More

This is a tiny, two-floor museum with a corridor, three rooms and a rotunda - a famous yellow tower with a pointed roof. The small number of exhibits are annotated in German without translations, but an English pamphlet can be obtained from the front desk....More

You may want to visit the Museum of Hoelderlin in the building, but the most exciting is to take a photo of the Tower (and Museum) either from the Neckar bridge, or from the walking Alley opposite of the tower. For Tuebingen it is a...More

They make you sit on opposite sides to balance the weight. And you have back rests so that we can relax as we move. The boatsmen even taught us to navigate the boat with the pole. It was really exciting.
