Walks with breathtaking views
Enjoy the unique view from the Schillerhöhe lookout point cresting the roofs of Biberach. Or how about an alpine view from "Lindele"? Both paths take you along the Biberach nature trail. Peruse the brochure on outdoor walks for more information on the flora and fauna awaiting you.
Via the municipal park ("Stadtgarten”) to Schillerhöhe
The Schillerhöhe lookout point perched atop the Gigelberg hillside offers you a wonderful view. The most beautiful way to the top starts at the Stadtgarten. With the vast expanse of blossoms in the foreground and the White Tower in back, you literally find yourself standing in a postcard motif of Biberach. Continue through the garden on towards the White Tower, which you visit every Saturday as part of a historical city tour. Walk underneath and through the White Tower along the path as you continually climb up to Schillerhöhe. From the lookout point under the branches of an old lime tree not far from the "Gigelturm" (Gigel tower), you will be able to see far beyond the rooftops of Biberach if you are visiting in good weather. A part of the old city wall connects the "Hochwacht" ─ the former quarters of the night guards ─ with the Gigelturm. Walk past the Hochwacht gate and the Hirschgraben up to the Gigelberg area, which has a playground and plenty of green grass to take a rest.
Alpine view from Lindele
You can take in the "Wielandlinde" on a walk to the "Lindele" lookout point. From Gigelberg, continue along the Gaisentalstraße to the "Krumme Weg", where you will pass through orchard meadows on your way to the "Lindele", which offers a fantastic view over Biberach and ─ if a föhn is present ─ extends all the way to the Alps. Follow the path up to Birkenharder Straße to reach the "Wielandlinde" where, in 1750 ─ as tradition holds ─ poet, thinker and son of Biberach Martin C. Wieland (1733 - 1818) became engaged to Sophie Gutermann (1730 - 1807), who later became known as writer Sophie von LaRoche.
