Description

It’s the race you’ve been training for since before you could walk or talk. Rubber ducks triumph in this university town during Tübingen's annual Entenrennen, or Duck Race, which takes place down the River Necker that courses through this historic town. Seven thousand ducks yellow rubber ducks, almost a third of the city's population, bob along the tree-lined river. The competition starts at midday and anyone with a rubber duck can participate; and if you left yours at home in the bathtub, ducks can be rented before the race. Spectators line the riverbanks to cheer the mass of yellow ducks hoping to speed up their journey to finish.
