Imbibe the energy of youth when you stay in any one of these places in Tubingen, Germany. Known for being a University Town, its youthful ambiance is balanced out by history that is hidden in almost every corner of this ancient German town.

1. Village apartment good for four people (from USD 64)

This listing on Airbnb features an apartment situated in a quiet village 6 kilometers (4 miles) from the town center. This place is perfect if you prefer a quieter neighborhood away from the hustle and bustle of the town. You can still have your fill of walks and hikes in the village and nearby. A trip to town is also easy to do because of a nearby bus stop that takes you to other parts of town. The town center is only a 10-minute bus ride.

The apartment is perfect for couples but can also accommodate two more people in the living with the sofa bed. The kitchen is well-stocked and brand new, making it easy to cook your own meals. Central heating is available if needed. A guest’s review sums up what this place can offer: “Christoph and Kasia’s place is absolutely beautiful!!! We booked this Airbnb very last minute, and were so appreciative that they accepted our booking with very little notice! It was wonderful to be able to cook a much-needed home cooked meal in their adorable kitchen :) The place is beautifully renovated and very clean, and even has (my favorite part) a well stocked mini bar with German beer and wines!”
