Biberach an der Riß Things to Do: 9 reviews and 20 photos


There is an old Town Hall too, and this one was built in the typical half-timbered brown & white in 1432.
It states "It is one of the oldest still existing Kehlbalkendacher of its kind."

It's had quite a varied life, including that large hall being used as a Butchery in 1432, The town Jail and war payments bureau till 1914, a weighing house from 1828 -1914, a Town Accountant office until 1953, and now has been restored and is also used as Council administration offices. Quite a life!

I noticed the building gets wider and wider on each level as it gets higher!

Address: Next to the "new" Town Hall
