Seeing biebelried from above

The european cultural trail "the stone heart of mainfranken", which connects biebelried, westheim and kaltensondheim on a length of 18 kilometers, can be explored naturally by fub or by bicycle – or by helicopter. The latter possibility was offered to the numerous visitors on sunday at the "kulturwegsfest".

Two helicopters in action

Throughout the day, two helicopters were available at the sports field for flights of about ten minutes, and the pilots of sky magic were also happy to perform flights to desired destinations, if possible. From high above, the passengers enjoyed an unforgettable view of biebelried and its neighborhoods. Clearly recognizable were the features of the former johanniter fort opposite the parish church.

A rough model in the fire station showed what the fort might have looked like. Peter knoch, the architectural historian and monument conservator, a proven expert on the johanniterkastell, explained the details during a well-attended guided tour on site. Equally well attended was the expert guided tour with markus kraus through the parish church st. John the baptist after the service.

Along the culture trail, which starts at the hotel leicht, the successor to the inn on the reichsstrabe, which was first mentioned in 1469 and is also the birthplace of the "blaue zipfel" (blue peaks), you will find an unusual cultural landscape with a number of special features, such as the simultaneous church in kaltensondheim or the trockau tomb in westheim.

Art and horsepower

In the fire station, not only the model of the fort could be marveled at, but also works by karl dostal, who as a war invalid found a home in the upper courtyard of the leicht inn in biebelried instead of in bombed-out wurzburg, and by jorg rother, who left his mark on the hotel leicht with his artistic works. But also the photos of the old biebelried met with great public interest, as well as the film about the village anniversary "1100 years biebelried" from 1992.

In front of the fire station wolfgang eschenbacher had organized an exhibition of old bulldogs and agricultural machinery. According to his words, the objects came from biebelried and the surrounding villages. "Some are still in use," he says.

The fahrkuche "cuisine roulante" from 1909, for example, is a piece of culture for body and soul and not many people have seen it yet. But also eicher-, holder-, deutz-, ford- or fendt-models of different age were there.

Due to the variety that the organizers had put on their feet, it took some strengthening in between. The johanniterweck, a local speciality, was in great demand.
