The object of this work is to study the properties of dynamical systems defined by tilings. A connection to symbolic dynamical systems defined by one- and two-dimensional substitution systems is shown. This is used in particular to show the existence of a tiling system such that its corresponding dynamical system is minimal and topological weakly mixing. We remark that for one-dimensional tilings the dynamical system always contains periodic points.
