How to get there:

The castle Hohentübingen is the highest point of the old city centre and part of the university. It hosts a famous archeological and historical museum. Use the map and address to walk towards it from the city centre (no public transportation - a taxi can bring you all the way up). When climbing the steep cobble stone street, you first pass through a highly ornamented gate. Continue and cross the moat, then walk through the second gate into the actual castle. Once you are in the central courtyard and walk towards the middle, you will see the large door of the “Rittersaal” (great hall) in the middle of the wing on your right.
