    Day 60. Tübingen, Germany

    October 3, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    The sun shone for us today for our outing to the Swabian University city of Tübingen. Andreas borrowed a 9 seater Mercedes people mover from his sister so we could all travel together: Inge, Bettina, Andreas, Isabel, Ardian, Ron and I.
    Thüringen has 87,544 inhabitants and 28,000 students and 7 universities and offers 330 different degrees.
    We walked through the Medieval old town centre to the Stifts Church, climbed the bell tower then up to the castle.
    We watched the famous “Stocherkahn“ boats which hold about 20 people. This boat is exclusive to Tübingen navigated by a long wooden pole and offers a scenic view of the picturesque Neckar waterfront with the famous Hölderlin Tower.

    Tübingen is a city in southwest Germany and home to one of Europe’s oldest universities. In the old town, Stiftskirche St. George’s Collegiate Church is a late-Gothic church with stained-glass windows and city views from its tower.
    The Stiftskirche was built by Peter von Koblenz in 1470 and was one of the first to convert to Martin Luther's Protestant church. It maintains several "Roman Catholic" features, such as patron saints.Read more

    Day 60b. Tübingen, Germany

    October 3, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    We stopped for coffee in the main Market place square with its beautiful City Hall and 17thC Neptune's Fountain. The ornately painted 15th-century City Hall is topped with a functioning astronomical clock. The City Hall was built with three stories in 1435, in 1508 heightened by a fourth level, and in 1511 decorated with an artfully made astronomical clock by Johannes Stöffler. The clock, which still functions, shows the course of the stars and the phases of the moon.Read more

    Next up the hill to the 1078 castle of the Counts of Tübingen. Hilltop Hohentübingen Castle is home to the Museum of Ancient Cultures, with Greek, Roman and Egyptian artifacts. Its most beautiful decoration is the Renaissance portal built around 1606 in the style of a Roman triumphal arch, whose centre shows the emblem of the Duchy of Württemberg.Read more

    La torre reunion 1

    September 20, 2016 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    This was a really special week: after almost two years of not seeing each other, my Monterrey roommates Argelia and Philipp came to visit me in Tübingen. Until the last moment I couldn't believe it would really happen, for it was a pretty spontaneous trip for both of them and Mexico is but exactly close. However, when they arrived it felt like we had just jumped right from the exchange to Tübingen without ever being separated.
    We started of by buying some of the last wine and chocolate at the already closing annual market with vendors from Italy and Spain (as we had to wait half an hour for the next bus, they didn't quite make it all the way to my flat).
    The next day, we took a good long walking tour through the town, including a ride on the Stocherkahn (a little boat resembling the Venice gondolas). Through it was a long day, after a nice quesadilla and guacamole dinner plus some tequila Argelia had brought with her, we were fit for the karaoke party at the Black Sheep.
    While I had to work the following day, the two others had the chance to go to the chocolate factory of Ritter Sport.
