Getting there

How to reach us

By plane / By Car: You can quickly arrive in Tübingen from anywhere. The geographical central point of Baden-Württemberg is situated on the intersection of the B 27 and B 28 main roads and therefore has good transport connections. The A 8 (Munich-Stuttgart) and the A 81 (Singen-Heilbronn) can be quickly reached by these main roads. The international airport Stuttgart-Echterdingen and Stuttgart’s trade fair lie only approx. 25 Kilometres north of Tübingen. It is possible to arrive in Tübingen in the same time-span as in Stuttgart by taking the four-lane B 27 main road.  You can also fly to Frankfurt Airport (FRA) and reach Tuebingen by train via Stuttgart.

With Public Transport: Tübingen’s main train station is centrally located on the southern side of the town centre. There are good connections to the South, for example to the Bodensee and Switzerland as well as to the North (IC direction Düsseldorf/Berlin) and to the ICE connections Stuttgart/Plochingen. From the international airport Stuttgart-Echterdingen or as the case may be from Stuttgart’s trade fair, you can reach Tübingen with the Airport-Sprinter bus line 828.
