Tips

  • Klaus Becker

    The birch head is 511m high. On the mountain, the debris of the city of Stuttgart were deposited after the Second World War. Hence the colloquial name Monte Scherbelino. Because of its altitude and location, of course, a beautiful vantage point.

    At Easter and the last weekend of the summer holidays there is a service on the Birkenkopf. Definitely worth seeing

    Nice view of the Stuttgart city center. Here, the remnants of the bombed-out inner city were transported after World War II to make room for the reconstruction of the city center. Since then, the birch head is 40 meters higher.

    If you walk in on the main path and continue around the whole perimeter, the path behind the rubble will take you out a different, stairway path you may not have noticed on the way in (before and to right of main entrance sign).

    Those who live in the area call the birch head "Mt Scherbelino", because the "shards" come from Stuttgart and the surrounding area. The rubble that originated in World War II in the estate.

    The birch head was between 1953 and 1957 with rubble of the city of Stuttgart from the Second World War increased by about 40 meters (or heaped up).

    From here you have a great view over the whole of Stuttgart and into the Remstal.
    At the "summit", fragments of the destroyed buildings were left to commemorate.

    Wonderful view of Stuttgart. The ascent is very easy to do and does not go up too steep.
