The town and University are inseparable. Described as one of the five classical “university towns”, the University is spread throughout the beautiful medieval town where the streets are steeped in history. From timber framed buildings to the ultra-modern, from cobbled alley ways to vibrant café culture, Tübingen is a very student-centred town offering a wide variety of social and cultural activities outside of the classroom. It provides the very best of German tradition, but with an international twist.
