Remains of the medieval city
If there is a site that identifies Tubingen, its Zwingel, the old city wall that runs along the Neckar shore and that leads to the historic center of the town. The remains of the old medieval city date back to 18th century and it's now a meeting point for students and tourists. A narrow alley allows you accees to a few feet of the remains of the wall and takes you to the Neckarbad, a public bath with picturesque narrow streets. The Zwingel is the famous and appreciated "front" of Tubingen, with its multicolored houses where the pedestal of the Defense Tower stands, now the museum Hölderlin, where the great, romantic poet lived until his death in 1843.
