Kunsthalle Wurth Museum

Reviewed By Elizabeth-Lucy - Eau Claire, Wisconsin

Located "across" town is the Wurth Museum. This museum charges no admission and does offer quite an art collection offered by the Wurth Family. Albeit only a portion of their collection is displayed here it does take some time to go through and enjoy the various themes offered. I would plan on two hours, longer if you want to peruse the museum shop or enjoy a snack in the cafe. The exhibit we viewed was Water, Clouds and Wind which I believe runs through September 2017. Please know that this is only a portion of over 17,000 pieces in the Wurth Collection in various museums located throughout Europe. The museum itself boasts some interesting architecture, but please note all artwork in sculpture in this museum was in Deutsch with no English translation; although we were fine walking through despite that fact.

Amazing Architecture, the staircase up to the church is very unique and looks amazimgly steep from below ... but it's worth it.

Grosscomburg

Reviewed By folieske4 - Antwerp, Belgium

Only have seen the exteriour, as the church was still closed. Would open a few days later, but by then we would have been in Oberau. Pitty, as seen on pix at the internet it must be nice. We took the steeper chapelway (crossway), but there is a carparking and then it is not that steep. We had a stroll in Steinbach and it was already getting dark when we arrived at this place. I can oly comment the exteriour, and that is a A+. There is a museumspub where one has to start the tour of the interiour church. The Grosscomburg exists of multiple buildings. One can climb steps and stairs and towers, one can partially walk arround the Grosscomburg via the outside wall. There are benches, so it is nice to have tranquil moments and just sit there. If we will visit this region again, will definately visit Grosscomburg again. Kleincomburg (St. Aëgidiuschurch) is at the mountain across Grosscomburg, and one can see the Panorama with this Grosscomburg. However, Tripadvisor would not list this, but that does not mean it is not worthwhile visiting.

Johanniterhalle

Reviewed By SimonW923 - Newcastle upon Tyne

Beautifully presented, these Old Masters are in magnificent condition and superbly exhibited in this old church. Intermingled with carvings, including from Tilman Riemenschneider - surely the greatest German Renaissance sculptor - it is a compelling and comprehensive collection. Remarkably, there was no entry charge, Highly recommended and a wonderful contrast to the Kunsthalle Wurst.

Lovely place with some terraces where you can have a drink and a nice chat. Afterwards you can cross the bridge and visit the park. You won't regret it, trust me. :)

Cafe am Markt

Reviewed By cooxie3 - Toronto, Canada

The offerings of this traditional Café located in a historic building are tasty and varied. It is a popular with the locals. Outdoor tables offer an excellent view off the St. Michaels church and the grand steps leading up to it.
Look to your left and you'll see City Hall just opposite the church.
Fortified by coffee and cakes you may find the energy to climb the steps up to the church and enjoy it's architecture that goes back many centuries.

Hallisch-Frankisches Museum

The Hällisch-Fränkisches Museum, located in the medieval centre of Hall, is displaying history, art and culture of the imperial town and its surroundings on more than 3000 square metres of exhibition space, spread across seven historical buildings. An informative walking tour is taking visitors from the geologic past of the region into the present age.

Reviewed By jmebgiv - Georgia

The Schwabisch Hall Museum is an impressive museum full of historical artifacts! My husband and I visited the museum with Schwabisch Hall residents with whom we stayed. The Museum is housed in seven different historical buildings, which includes the Kecken Tower which was built in 1238/39. The museum includes artifacts such as tools from the Ice Age and many pieces of art work from the Middle Ages to the present including a collection of Leonhard Kern (1588-1662) alabaster and ivory sculptures. A large city model allows visitors to see variations in the size of the city over time. There is an extensive collection of painted targets (about 200) spread throughout the museum. A second portion of the museum, the Stadtmuhle, houses several floors of the city's history from the French Revolution up to the end of the 20th century. This includes several exhibits on Jewish life in Schwabisch Hall, including room recreation of Synagogue paneling from 1738/39.
The one downfall for an English-speaking visitor is that there is almost no English text explaining the exhibits; however, the museum does offer an English pamphlet. Even without the English translations throughout the museum, I still believe that it is a great visit for even those travelers who are not familiar or not comfortable with Reading German.

Brunnen und Pranger

Reviewed By BineQuilts

Ever wonder what they did with people who lied stole or did other illegal actions? Well they put them on the pranger right in front of the church by the large Fountain. Everyone could see them and they were shamed.
