The city of Tübingen has a long-standing tradition in excellent research, as it is home to one of Germany's oldest universities, founded in 1477. More recently, a number of top-level non-university research institutes have established themselves in the city. They include Max Planck Institutes, institutions of the Leibniz Association and the Helmholtz Association, and others. They all contribute to making Tübingen a unique place to do research, as very few other locations offer such a close-knit and interwoven community of scientific excellence.

Tübingen breathes research: University facilities and research institutes are located all over the city, giving the entire town a campus atmosphere.
