A small college town not far from the major city of Stuttgart, Germany, Tübingen is a beautiful city to spend an afternoon in. I am very lucky; I have extended family that lives in Germany, and my aunt took me here for a day to enjoy lunch, shop around and enjoy the charm of being in a traditional German village. It was lovely, the city really takes the time to keep the streets clean, the flowers watered and all the store fronts in tip-top shape to make sure everything is prime and perfect all the time. Here are some pictures from my day
Tübingen is very much a college town, the university is definitely the centerpiece of the city, but it has some shopping, restaurants and cultural life as well for tourists passing through. There are many art and music festivals throughout the year and there is plenty to walk around and see for an afternoon.
