Tuebingen duck race

During the Tuebingen duck race, thousands of rubber ducks are thrown into the Neckar river every year on the first Saturday in October. Each duck is marked. The fastest ducks win a prize. The race starts at 14 o’clock on the Alleenbrücke and the finish line is between Hölderlinturm and Eberhardsbrücke. The award ceremony starts at 15.15 on the Neckar Island. Snacks and drinks are also available there. You can buy a duck ticket for 3 Euro at the tourist office on the Neckar bridge, at the S-Point and at various other places. The race is also a “fundraiser”. This means that donations for a good cause are collected. The duck race is organized by the “Round Table 182 Tübingen”, a politically and denominationally neutral association of young men for social participation.

Vaccinations for children

Diseases such as measles, mumps and rubella can be very dangerous for adults and children. So far, one can only fight the symptoms, but there is no therapy. These diseases are also extremely contagious, so vaccination is particularly important. There is one vaccination for these three diseases. Two vaccination dates are recommended for children. The first one is between 11 and 14 months old and the second until 23 months at the latest. Adults who have not yet been vaccinated against measles, mumps and rubella can get a follow-up vaccination. This vaccination is paid for by the health insurance. Before the vaccination one should always ask the paediatrician for advice. For more information: www.bzga.de/infomaterialien
