Punt boat ride

Stocherkahnfahrten, also known as punt boat rides, are an integral part of Tübinger culture. The punter propels the boat forward by pushing against the riverbed with a pole. All you’ll have to do is lean against the wooden seats and enjoy the view. Each boat seats around 14 people. With individuals sitting across from each other, the design of the boat encourages conversation and networking. Don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy the charming city of Tübingen from the river Neckar!
