Schwäbisch Hall


Schwäbisch Hall is a town in the German state of Baden-Württemberg and capital of the district of Schwäbisch Hall. The town is located in the valley of Kocher river in the north-eastern part of Baden-Württemberg and is one of the most picturesque towns in Germany. This small town of 40.000 inhabitants has only a few sights but for sure is a must visit, thanks mainly to its architecture. Schwäbisch Hall has a long tradition as a university town and also offers education opportunities through vocational schools and various technical schools.

What To See...

Market Square

This is the most central square of the city and one of the points you should not miss. St.Michael’s Church is imposing and by going up the stairs you will be able to see a very beautiful view of the square.

St.Michael's Church

This very beautiful church in the central square of Schwäbisch Hall is one of the city’s landmarks and definitely worth visiting. Apart from its very beautiful interior, it also offers incredible views of the square and the opposite hill. Do not forget to climb the stairs, it’s really worth it.

Steinerner Steg

In our opinion this is the most beautiful street in the city. It is located in the most scenic spot, with the characteristic traditional houses, and crosses Kocher river. From this bridge, and from the two small islands below, you will take some amazing pictures that really look like a painting.

Schwäbisch Hall City Center

In fact the center of Schwäbisch Hall is very small. The two main streets that cross it are, Schulgasse and Schwatzbühlgasse. On these streets are the most cafes, restaurants and shops of the city.

Nearby Excursions

Baden-Württemberg is one of Germany’s most beautiful states and you will surely be able to see some very beautiful villages and fantastic landscapes. Within walking distance you will be able to see a part of the Romantic Road, which is one of the most beautiful trips you can make by car in the world. Some famous villages of this road that we strongly recommend you to visit are, Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Dinkelsbuhl, Tauberbischofsheim and many others that will be refer in detail on an other trip.

What To Eat

In Schwäbisch Hall we recommend you to taste some of the traditional German dishes, in a restaurant, in the city center. Most of them are located around the market square in the main shopping streets. Unfortunately, we did not have the chance to try one of these, because our stay at Schwäbisch Hall was quite short. We may not have the time to eat at a restaurant, but we ate a delicious breakfast at Mack Bakery. A huge variety of salty and sweet goodies, all delicious and at excellent prices. We highly recommend you to visit it for breakfast or for a quick snack.

How to move

Schwäbisch Hall is a small town, and it will certainly be very easy to explore all of the above mentioned attractions within a few hours by just walking. If you arrive by car, you should better leave it at the parking lots at the entrance of the city, about 500 meters from the center, and then walk without stress to the city.

The nearest airport is Stuttgart Airport and is about 1 hour drive (112 Km) by car or train from the city’s main station and is very easily accessible. Frankfurt airport is another option also, but not as good as Stuttgart, as it is a two hour drive by car (188 Km).

Where to stay

The price range for your stay at Schwäbisch Hall are normal, and a nice double room in the city center will cost you about 70-100 euros per night. The choices are limited, because there are not so many accommodations, and probably it is a good idea to book a room in advance via
