An impressive castle and an even more impressive museum to be found inside. Also a lovely park and terrific views over the town.

An attractive structure with great views over the town. Half of the castle is a museum, the other university departments, so limited scope for visiting inside. The castle gate is a highlight.

Definitely check it out if you are in Tibingen but I wouldn't go out of my way. It was also nice to enjoy a glass of Hefe at an outdoor cafe with a view of it. It was ok, not over the top or anything.

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

In addition to the great views, you can visit a free little museum were DNA was discovered. I didn't realize the substance of DNA was discovered here.

A lovely wander to the castle and well rewarded with brilliant views and a nice wander round in the sun. so glad we made time to visit although we could have planned better and taken food and spent more time there. Really pretty.

To see this place was a bonus as without our German friends we would of never known it was there Treading the cobbles where others have for centuries was worth every step

The hike up there is very easy, from the main square there are signs guiding you on where to go, which is very useful. However, I did not find the views from the Castle so marvellous. The problem is that the fortifications are quite high...More

While wandering around Tubingen we set out to visit this castle but it wasn't easy to find .....we couldn't find a TI so we finally resorted to buying a town book with a map. Once up at the castle, we strolled around the castle courtyard...More

I'd say around 1 hour ... although you could potentially stay for a few hours if you wanted to relax up there with a picnic and enjoy the views. Plenty of lovely gardens to sit in.
