Take a look

Natural history
How old is Mother Earth?
How many stars are there in the sky?

Fossils of ichthyosaurus, sharks and mammoths carry you away into a time millions of years ago.

Archaeology

The Biberach dentist and archaeological pioneer Heinrich Forschner has collected about 22,000 archaeological finds from Upper Swabia including the remains of two piledwelling settlements, which today are under the protection of the UNESCO.

History

Gothic, Baroque and Biedermeierstyle works of art, a tannery, decorative tragacanth items and the oldest tin toy of the Wuerttemberg region illustrate almost 1,000 years of city life.

Weaving mill

Biberach is an old weaving town that became rich with fustian, a blended fabric made from linen and cotton. Weaving demonstrations take place on Sundays from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Art 17th to 19th century

Biberach is a city of the arts. Johann Melchior Dinglinger, the goldsmith of German Baroque, who comes from Biberach and who created precious works in Dresden, counts among the greatest.

Artists’ studios

The unique studios of the Munich animal painters Anton Braith and Christian Mali as well as the studio of the Biberach painter Jakob Bräckle document the change in artistic selfconception.

Ernst Ludwig Kirchner

It is thanks to fortunate circumstances that the brother of the expressionist Ernst Ludwig Kirchner lived in Biberach. This is how numerous works by Kirchner ended up in Biberach Museum.

Art 20th and 21st century

Heinz H. Engler is one of the most successful designers in Germany. A number of young artists is continuing the artistic tradition of the town.
