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

It was a long walk, although that's probably our fault, to get to the castle. From the outside, it looked large and interesting. Once you enter the courtyard you realise it's a university building and the rooms are closed. The only worthwhile bit is the...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 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.

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.
