The Tübingen castle for some reason always made me feel like going to Hogwarts. The museum is great and from the castle you can enjoy wonderful views on Tübingen rooftops. Also pass the main gate and take another stairs to reach European Anthropology insitute. Behind...More

This Castle is on a hill affording lovely views of the city and the Neckar below. There are various exhibits open to the public within the Castle, including one on the discovery of DNA. The Castle itself is beautiful, and the hike up scenic.

The castle itself is above average. It's location is great. Parts of the castle are used by the university now. Students hang out in the courtyard, in the garden, and various other places. Lovely views of the town, river and surrounding area. Very relaxing with...More

The castle offers a lovely view of Tubingen. It's cold and rainy at the moment but on a warmer day, this place would be ideal to soak it all in.

This building will soon celebrate its 1000th birthday, which in itself makes it worth visiting. Inside is an archeological museum with some amazing artifacts.

A walk up the cobblestoned steep street to get to Hohentubingen is a must. The building, which now contains the University, is very different, and the city view from up there is quite impressive. The museum was shut on the day we visited, but the...More

The castle that houses part of the university also contains a museum that has neat sections about antiquity but the small animal sculptures in its prehistoric section beat the rest and is worthwhile the journey on its own. The castle also contains a small exhibition...More

I had a lovely walk up here in June and the weather was gorgeous. This is a great place for viewing the scenery surrounding tubingen. However, there is a lack of activities when you reach the top and also a lack of refreshment facilities. I...More

The Castle isn't that big - but delivers a stunning view all over the Tübingen old Town. The ramparts of the Castle itself are worth a visit too naturally! Easiest Access is via the market Place and the Haaggasse. More over you can check out...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.
May I know the price of the entrance ticket?
