Tübingen is a traditional university town in Baden-Württemberg, Southwestern Germany, 30 km outside of Stuttgart. 1 in 3 people living here is a uni student. The area was probably first settled in the 12th millennium BC. The Romans left some traces here in AD 85, when they built a Limes frontier wall at the Neckar river. Tübingen itself dates from the 6th or 7th century, when the region was populated by the Alamanni.
