Attractions in Biberach
Biberach an der Riß is a city steeped in history that dates back centuries. Markets, towers and the magnificent merchants' houses characterise the beautifully preserved former imperial city. Biberach is also a stopping point along three major tourist routes. Delve into a wealth of spectacular and entertaining facts from the pages of history as well as take the "spirit" of Biberach back with you on your way home!
Did you know that the parish church of St. Martin is one of the oldest "shared churches" in Germany? The Weißgerberwalk is also unique in its own right as it is the oldest chamois leather tannery in Germany. The Weberberg, with its eye-catching half-timbered houses, is a stopping point on the German Timber-Frame Road (Deutsche Fachwerkstraße), while the Marktplatz (market square) is one of the most beautiful of its kind in Southern Germany. An absolute must is the fresh produce market held every Wednesday and Saturday. The historical treasures and winding alleys of Biberach can best be explored on a guided city tour.
