Sports in Tübingen

Students in fancy dress do battle on the Neckar at May's hilarious Stocherkahnrennen punt race, where jostling, dunking and even snapping your rival’s oar are permitted. The first team to reach the Neckarbrücke wins the race, the title and as much beer as they can sink. The losers have to down half a litre of cod liver oil.

Arrive early to snag a prime spot on Platanenallee.
