The city of Tübingen provides many different vacation programs for children and teens. You should register your child as early as possible.
The programs are offered by various organizations; some for a few hours, some for day-long or week-long activities.
For some of the programs you must be registered as a resident of the city of Tübingen or the Tübingen district. You must register your child directly with the organization offering the program. For holders of the childrens’ discount cards KinderCard/KreisBonuscard-Junior there is usually a discount - in some cases a waiver - of the cost of programs.
