Arrrival - Bibliography - Inscriptions of Biberach - Internet

Biberach on Riss, former free town of the German Empire, is not only a nice little town nowadays, but also a gold mine for inscriptions that show the importance Biberach had in the past. The historical monuments and events are well-documented on the sites, but unfortunately do all the inscriptions only exist in German. That is what our pages try to remedy...

Arrival by Public Transport

The nearest international airports are Stuttgart and Munich. From there you can take a direct train to Ulm, where you have to change to a regional train going to Biberach/Riss. Even from Paris (Gare de l’est) and Strasbourg, there are direct trains to Ulm. From the airports of Zürich and Basel/Mulhouse, however, train connections are more complicated and may demand several changes, the last one mostly taking place at Aulendorf.

The railway station is somewhat out of the town, but it is only a few minutes' walk. By the way, all the monuments of the medieval town are reachable on foot.

Indications concerning the arrival correspond to our personal knowledge or even experience, but we cannot assume any responsibility for their rightness. When you are reading this page, things may have changed in reality.

For regional, national, and international trains, see the online information of the Deutsche Bahn.
