The City of Tübingen
Tübingen, with its picturesque location on the Neckar River, is one of the most beautiful cities in Germany. The modern city is built around the well-preserved and lovingly-restored Old Town, which contains buildings dating back to medieval times. The marketplace, the castle (Schloss), the main church (Stiftskirche), and the riverfront all attract visitors.
Tübingen is a university town, and has been one for over 500 years, since the Eberhard Karls University was founded in 1477. Today about one-third of the city's 83,000 inhabitants--28,000 in all—-are students, making Tübingen the German city with the lowest average age (39.1 years / December 2015) and giving it a cheerful bustle and cosmopolitan character.
