This beautiful gothic church dates back to the early 15th century and has witnessed a lot of history; this is a 'must see' if you are visiting Hall. 53 broad steps lead up from the market square to the church and, if you are energetic, a further 160 steps take you to the top of the tower with fantastic views...

Schwabish Hall is a beautiful, charming small German town which oozes with history and charm. St. Michael is located right in the heart of the old town and is surrounded by many other midieval buildings. St. Michael's exterior and interior of course are very similar to many of the cathedrals built in Europe during the 1600/1700 hundreds. The Church, itself,... More

A steep walk was rewarded with one of the most beautiful churches I've ever seen. We walked through to the back, where you can look through glass and see bones from a cemetery that was moved from that location.

We visited on the advice of our Austrian friend Lotte. Wow what a lovely place. Go to the car park and don't overstay, I got a ticket and duly posted them ten euros! Go to tourist information and choose a city walk and that's all there is too it. Just stunning buildings and historic salt pans. Lovely bars and restaurants... More

I love visiting the church. I've been going to Schwäbish Hall since I was a child and this church is beautiful. In summer, at the stairs, they place a stage and you can see plays. It's really nice. On Thursdays and Saturdays there is a market.

Outdoor theatre on the church steps and Town Square in the Summer Months. To sit outside one of the adjacent cafe's soaking up the Olde Worlde atmosphere and watching the locals go about... More

Stop and visit this church! Give donation to help maintain the church inside and out. Walk in level at the back of the church, climb the church tower and have a wonderful view over Schwaebisch Hall. Walk out the front door and go down many steps to the market place. City hall, a restaurant, cafes, shopping and tourist info are... More

Enjoy this church with the stairs in front of it. There are events on the stairs (theater and music). The stunning atmosphere in the church with a lot of Christian saints and sculptures is really one of a kind. Enjoy also the organ concerts. Don't miss the 'silent chamber' on the south side of the Cathedral with the old cabinet... More
