For me in general, entire Tübingen looks and feels like being in a fairytale. Holderlin's Tower is a small musem, but really nice with a piano inside and nice art works. It offers beautiful views to the river and the Neckar Island. And this house...More

A pretty building on the banks of the Neckar. But not much too see inside unless you a/ have some interest in the poet's life and b/ can read German.

They make you sit on opposite sides to balance the weight. And you have back rests so that we can relax as we move. The boatsmen even taught us to navigate the boat with the pole. It was really exciting.

if you are looking for a ride on one of the river punts, the hire station by the Tourist Info is closed in winter, instead walk north of the river and some private operators take people out here.
