Neutron stars are, at least in principle, laboratories for extreme physics. They are expected to contain superfluid components, the presence of which may affect their behaviour significantly. In this talk, I will discuss our current understanding of neutron-star superfluidity, how our models relate to laboratory systems (like superfluid helium) and give an overview of the observational evidence from pulsar glitches, free precession and magnetar oscillations.
