Hirschau has a population of 3428 on an area of 6,17 km². It is the westernmost district of Tübingen. Hirschau lies to the north of the Neckar river, about 3 km to the east of Wurmlingen, which is a part of Rottenburg am Neckar, and about 6 km to the east of the town centre of Rottenburg am Neckar as well as to the west of the city centre of Tübingen.
The highest point is the Spitzberg at 475 m above mean sea level.
Unlike most of Tübingen, Hirschau is, like neighbouring Rottenburg, mostly Roman Catholic.
