Hohentübingen – A Castle on the Hill

A beautiful castle Hohentübingen (Schloss Hohentübingen) stands on a 372-meters high hill in the center of Tübingen. The first mention of Tübingen in 1078 is associated just with this Castle. The Count Palatines of Tübingen lived in the Castle till 1342, until it was sold to the Count of Württemberg.

Early in the XVI century the Castle underwent significant reconstruction, as a result of which it acquired its current Renaissance appearance. In 1816, King Wilhelm I of Württemberg transferred the Castle into ownership of the university, which accepted the present utilitarianistically and adapted it to its own needs. Therefore, only a few signs of luxury survived in the interiors of Hohentübingen. But now there is an interesting museum of the University of Tübingen in the Castle, so it still holds a leading position on the tourist map of the town. And of course, Hohentübingen deserves attention as a remarkable architectural monument.
