The River Neckar with its famous island and Philosophers' Walk lends its identity to the University town of Tübingen. The aim of the concept is to transfer the special lifestyle and flair of the historic city center to the new construction in the north of the city.
The new quarter will predominantly be situated on a newly created Neckar island, created through the confluence of a side stream. The publically accessible belt of the wetlands along the Neckar with bike paths, BBQ areas, open-air stage and hiking paths separate the island with its characteristically aligned houses from the "mainland".
