Geography

The district consists of hilly countryside between the rivers of the Danube and the Iller. The Danube crosses the district in its westernmost part from south to north. The Iller forms the eastern border of the district. Another river is the Riss, an affluent of the Danube crossing the district from south to north.

The Federsee is a small lake in the southwest of the district. Its area is only 1.4 km², but it is famous for Neolithic findings and rare birds.

Media

The local newspaper is the Schwäbische Zeitung ("Swabian Newspaper"). Biberach has also a film festival for German films which celebrated its 31st anniversary in 2009.
