  • Don't climb the steep hill overlooking the city of Tübingen if climb is not. The entrance include commemorative plates of the land of the nucleic acid detection by Mischa. We are interested in biology.

  • This was a fun walk from the market square and great to explore the castle. Plus it was free which is cool. The castle is in great shape and worth a visit  more »
  • I visited on the day after their stay in Tübingen. Climb to the castle's Hill. So to me pretty tight climbed while the rest. Nice views overlooking the city.

  • From top you have a beautiful view of Tübingen. I like the most, surrounding view in Autumn - amazing reddish, brownish, yellow coloration of leaves. Then this museum has amazing collection of ancient remains and things. It is surprisingly good...
  • Nice view of the city and very well maintaned castle. Worth the time 100%
  • We didnot go in, but the bird-view around the castle on the hill was already very satisfying.
  • The museum has a very nice collection of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs and remains from Egyptian civilisation. The items of ivory from the ice age are very precious and takes us back to thousands of years. The guided tour in English was really insightful and interesting.
  • You can get into the museum or just walk though the castle. It's a imponent construction that would transport you to a medieval era
