Birkenkopf - Monte Scherbelino Stuttgart

Your safety and wellbeing is of great concern to us. Please note the following:

  • Min. Distance

    1.50 m

The Birkenkopf is a 511-m-high hill in the urban area of Stuttgart – the most elevated point within the inner-city zone. Standing almost 300 m higher than the R. Neckar, it offers spectacular views!

Between 1953 and 1957 the hill "grew" by about 40 metres: around 15,000,000 cubic metres of debris resulting from World War II were deposited on top of it. On its summit one can still recognise the remains of the façades of many ruined buildings. This is why the hill is known to Stuttgart's inhabitants as "Monte Scherbelino" ("rubble hill").
