Welcome to Biberach
In the south of Germany nobody argues with Biberach‘s claim to be a prolific centre of culture. The town boasts three museums and a host of quality cultural events including one of the greatest historical folk festivals, the oldest German amateur dramatic society, the oldest and largest children‘s theatre, the “family festival of German filmmakers“, art exhibitions, series of concerts, literature events and scientific symposiums. Child care and schools are exemplary. The people of the town are active in promoting the quality of life in Biberach through all kinds of clubs.
Biberach looks back on a rich history, is traditional and forward-looking, patriotic and cosmopolitan: guests are welcomed with open arms. The “natives“ of Biberach have grown used to integrating a great variety of newcomers into their midst to form an optimistic civic society. In a town characterised for centuries by its double-denominationalism, debate and compromise with others is the core of the cultural heritage. And this is what makes the town unique and likeable. With its location in the vicinity of the foothills of the Alps – the Riß ice age owes its name to a moraine outcrop here – Biberach is known for its high residential and recreational value.
Today Biberach is a thriving business location: multinational companies, for example Boehringer Ingelheim with its focus on pharmaceutical research and biotechnology; Liebherr, which is not only famous for its cranes; Handtmann, a high-tech company offering products and services in the sector of mechanical engineering, to mention just a few. The Biberach University, which offers degree courses in Architecture and Economics and which has extended its curriculum to include Biotechnology, has an excellent reputation throughout Germany.
