Photographer's Note

Last February, I went to visit my wife in Tuebingen. She was doing a part of her PHD there and I found out she was very lucky staying in a place of such beauty. The city center is very nice with all the old medieval buldings well preserved and painted with strong happy colours.

Tuebingen was extremely lucky, during ww2 with only one bomb being droped there, so the original buildings still stand. This is one of the nicer views of the old city center, taken from one of the many bridges that cross the Neekar river.

Unfortunately, while being there, the weather was not very good, snowing time to time and the light to take this photo was not the best. With sun and blue sky, I believe it would be nicer.


On the left corner behind the tree, the yellow house is the Holderlin tower. The genius mad poet Holderlin was a native of Tuebingen and lived all his life there, never coming out. At least he had a nice view!
