The aim of this Bachelor Thesis is to provide a mathematical description for the space-time in which strings described by string theory life. Firstly a detailed description of string theory will be given. A consequence of string theory known as T-duality will be discussed. Secondly a mathematical framework for the geometry of stringy space-time will be provided which tries to encapture T-duality as a natural symmetry. Generalized Geometry will be discussed and this will be related to Double Field Theory and Metastring theory descriptions of the string theory by means of para-Hermitian manifolds.
