Tübingen is a charming medieval town on a hill above the Neckar river in southern Germany. The town is full of half-timbered houses from the 15th century, pedestrian streets, and market squares full of restaurants, cafes, and shops. The Swabian university town of 86,000 inhabitants and 27,000 students combines the flair of a lovingly restored medieval centre of town with the colorful bustle and typical atmosphere of a young and cosmopolitan students‘ town, perfect for singles and families alike, with a lively arts and entertainment scene.
The town is surrounded by fields and forests with endless walking, biking, horse riding, and mountain biking trails. Tübingen lies at the center of Europe, between the vibrant city of Stuttgart and the expansive nature of the Swabian Alb. Science, culture, history, and nature combine to make Tübingen a delightful place to live or visit.
There are also numerous collaborations within the Tübingen Research Campus and with the University of Tübingen, including the Center for Integrative Neuroscience, the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience, the Department of Computer Science, and the University Hospital Clinics.
