Hohentubingen Castle (Schloss Hohentubingen) Tours

Hohentubingen Castle (Schloss Hohentubingen)
Come to the 11th-century Hohentubingen Castle for the hilltop views, but stay for what's inside the castle: The University of Tübingen houses the largest number of scientific collections of any German university. Explore ancient art, culture, and traditions through the university’s unique treasures on display.

The Basics
The university’s collections encompass varied fields of study in its almost 70 specialist collections, from the Castings Collection to the Zoological Collection, and from astrophysics to dentistry. Among the areas open to the public, see exhibits exploring the origins of art and how it developed along the Mediterranean Sea. Marvel at plaster casts in the Collection of Classical Archeology. Learn about gods and deities and the rituals of death practiced in ancient Egypt via a spectrum of funerary rites with mummy masks and coffins.

To understand more about the castle itself, book a short guided tour that provides insight into the history of the town and castle, and its importance in the sciences.
