This Church is definitely worth a visit while in Schwabisch Hall. Some information is in English which helps if you do not know German. This is an active Lutheran Church, which was dedicated in 1156. The steps on the front lead directly to the historic market place. This church is part of the Reformation and has roots with Detrich Bonhoeffer's... More

Visit the church and view beautiful carvings, antique glass windows, tapestries and more. Go behind the altar and look down into the cellar where hundreds of skulls and bones are laid to rest. These remains were found during various excavations in the area. The church offers several services. The lutheran church and its famous steps offer a nice view to... More

Magnificent old church. Unlike many churches of its era that became Protestant during the Reformation, the art work survived due to the influence of Johannes Brenz. Definitely worth a visit.

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.
