The place worth to be visited in Tübingen is the Neckar river. The river is born in the Schwenningen, Black forest (706 m above mean sea level). The river discharges into the Rhine river. There is a special kind of boating in the river during summer, known as stocherkahn, amidst serene beauty of the riverbank. The holderlin tower is at its best view from the island or from stocherkahn.
