The former weavers' settlement with its beautifully restored half-timbered houses makes Biberach a stopping point along the German Half-timbered House Road. The Weberberg was famous for its production of fustian, a fabric woven from linen an cotton and exported all over the world. Around 1500 there are said to have been 400 looms in Biberach and a quarter of the population made its living from the weaving industry.
