Walk around and think how it has been in earlier days. Great place to make some very nice pictures. You can walk the grounds on your own and take your time to explore.

I was looking for a peaceful, easy place to visit and Hirsau ruins did not disappoint. I was amazed at how far back this abbey dates and how much of it is still around. It's just a skeleton of what used to be, but I...More

We passed by this place after visiting the old centre of Calw, which is truly a lovely place as well. The Hirsau schloss is impressive to see, already from a distance, as it actually looks quite well preserved but obviously on the main building the...More
