Nice Places around Tuebingen / Stuttgart

by sunset_gal

Are there any cool towns (picturesque, etc) located around Tuebingen/Stuttgart? These towns should ideally be accessible by public transportation as I will not have access to a car. I plan to go during Sat or Sun, an ovenighter if it's further. Appreciate all suggestions.

hi there,
from Stuttgart easy to catch (in about 30 min. by d-train) are:

Esslingen - biggest town not been distroyed during WWII, oldest timberwood house in Germany, nice old ruin and walls
Plochingen- nice little town, less tourist, a must is the Hunderwasser-Haus
Bietigheim - also very nice to stroll around, perfect combination of old and new architecture (dont miss the museum in the Hornmoldhaus (spelling?)
Ludwigsburg - baroque city, one of the biggest castles in Europa and a beautiful garden

From Tübingen: Hechingen and the castle Hohenzollern, very worth

have fun
Gar

Hi, thanks for the info. Do you know if it's possible to get monthly train passes for travel around the area, buses/trains?

Will a under-26 card help in any way?

Yes, it is possible to get public transport monthly ticket to the area. Unfortunately you won't be able to travel in both cities with this ticket, as Stuttgart and Tuebingen are on different local networks. You would have to buy two seperate tickets, one for Tuebingen and one for Stuttgart. Those two together would be very expensive and not really worth the money.

Tübingen is inside the NALDO local public transport network
http://www.naldo.de/

Stuttgart inside the VVS
http://www.vvs.de

Are you based in Tübingen? As a student?
Than you may qualify for a "Semesterticket" valid one Semester (6 months), EUR 36 and covering the whole NALDO area.

Otherwise monthly ticket prices will depend on the number of zones of the NALDO or VVS you need. Makes no sense normally to buy more zones than you need on a daily base. Better to buy a day ticket for NALDO (or VVS) for further trips. And if travelling beyond this area buy a Baden-Württemberg Ticket Single (EUR 17,00).

Unfortunately I’m no longer a student and will be working there for a month and a half only. Would really like to see the surrounding towns without burning a hole in my pocket.

With NALDO, which towns are covered? Is there a map or something which shows this? The site is in German and I don’t understand.

My friend also told me that there are return tickets for weekend trips in Germany that have good value. Where can I get info in English? I think they are good for 2 people or?

Vielen dank im voraus!

Travel Tips for Tübingen

The Impossibly Tall Gabled Medieval Buildings

by antistar

My first visit to Tubigen was so long ago that I barely remember any of it, and I was surprised to find little that jolted it when I returned 18 years later (good God was it that long ago). What I do remember of it the first time around, clearer than anything, were the tall gabled houses, which were like nothing I had ever seen before. They stretched impossibly into the sky, leaning over the tight alleyways of the town, like they would collapse in on you at any moment. Some would be seven or eight stories tall, incredible for their age, and then you would see them from the banks of the Neckar river, climbing up the side of hills. Their sheer drops at the base of the house, and the reflections in the river, would make them seem twice as high again.

A Note on Mineral Water

by JetlagCity

I've heard Americans are known for carrying bottles of water around with them, and I am no different. I quickly discovered that in Baden-Wurttemburg, mineral water may actually taste like minerals - it was like drinking water from a hot springs (at least to me). It's also often carbonated. Apparently this is popular here, and it's all that's available at some restaurants and bars. I tried it a few times but it didn't seem to suit me, so I quickly learned to buy my own bottle of plain water to carry with me, after spending my first day feeling rather parched.

Maybe if I stayed here awhile I would eventually get used to it, you never know...

Platanenallee

by bugulma

There are wonderful views in Platanenallee that is situated in the island. Colourful line of houses, the Hohentuebingen castle, Neckar River of course and the Platenenallee itself are available to enjoy here. I think it is more popular place for making photos than other parts of the city.

I don't honestly remember how...

by Venturingnow

I don't honestly remember how I found my way to wherever I was walking, but I found a set of stairs that led me up to the top of a hill where I found a dirt path that led me up and through hills and forests. There were some really rewarding views like the one in this picture.

Alter Botanischer Garten

by bugulma

Another wonderful place is the old botanic garden that is situated in the eastern central part of the city, between Am Stadtgraben and Rueminstrasse streets. Of course, it would be the more beautiful in summer or autumn but winter views of the park is worth seeing as well.
