What to do after the German course, work or as a remedy for boredom? This is a question many immigrants ask themselves after moving to a new city. TünewsINTERNATIONAL has put together a few free activities and events in Tübingen.
Museums and exhibitions: For example, the city museum at Kornhausstraße 10 can be visited free of charge. It is open Wednesdays to Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and always offers current special exhibitions. The Hölderlinturm or the exhibitions in the Kulturhalle can also be visited without admission. This also applies to the outdoor areas of Bebenhausen Monastery. A selection of Tübingen’s museums can be found on the city’s website. There is also an interactive map with all locations: https://www.tuebingen.de/109.html.
The German-American Institute Tübingen (www.dai-tuebingen.de) offers free admission to various events such as exhibitions and discussions. https://www.dai-tuebingen.de/veranstaltungen/ausstellungen.html Until September 16, the exhibition “Strong is the new pretty” with pictures by photographer Kate T. Parker can be seen at Karlstraße 3. Open Tuesdays through Fridays from 1 to 6 p.m., Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
