With a heavy heart we had to cancel the Tübingen Lindy Exchange 2020 due to the corona virus! We hope for a new Exchange in 2023!

What is a Lindy Exchange?

The first Lindy Exchange took place in 1998 between the cities of San Francisco and Chicago, with the aim to get to know the dance style of the other scene. This quickly led to international events that focused on sightseeing, getting to know the foreign city and its community, as well as dancing, of course, rather than classes or workshops. Today, such exchanges are taking place all over the world, inviting people to get to know new cities and their Lindy-Hop communities.

About Tübingen and SwingZeit

Some say: "Tübingen has no university, Tübingen is a university". With its almost 30,000 students, it is one of the youngest - in terms of age - and at the same time one of the oldest - in terms of the Eberhard Karls University founded in 1477 - cities in Germany, and it is located in the heart of Baden-Wuerttemberg. The city at the Neckar is particularly known for its famous personalities like Friedrich Hölderlin, its great research such as the discovery of DNA, and its student traditions like the annual Stocherkahn race around the Neckar Island.

7 years ago, the first Lindy Hop dancers came to Tübingen and started to build a community - the SwingZeit Tübingen was born! Since then, the scene is continually growing: From just one social per month we now offer numerous courses, weekly socials and workshops such as the Spaetzle-Hop and our first Lindy Exchange in 2019. Just like the city itself, we are a colorful bunch: from young to old, from multicultural to long-established Swabians, from hot-off-the-fire dance lovers to long-time dancers ... Now we are looking forward to welcoming you back in our small and beautiful city for this year’s Tübingen Lindy Exchange.
