A very interesting place
Jul 2019
ou can come across a large, beautiful area, think about the past. Look at the ruins and reflect on continuous and senseless fights between people who are concerned about differences in views, and mainly about the wealth that other people have.

Actually at Klosters

The map is wrong. We spent half an hour looking for this place only to find it at Klosters. Spent more time looking for it than we actually spent there!

So very interesting.

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.

Very good location for photography
Sep 2018 • Family
The old ruins of the palace of Hirsau is a very good location for make photos. Especially at sunset the facade of the castle with the different shades and shadows is an amazing photo motive. The ruins are quite beautiful and from architectural view very interesting. The palace was built in the style of the Renaissance and only the outside walls are standing.

On our way somewhere else we happily stumbled on this Abbey
Apr 2018 • Friends
We were on our way to Neuenburg for lunch when we drove thru Calw (loved the name) and spied this ancient Abbey. Very tranquil, beautiful and the architecture great. In fact much of the old part of this town was beautiful. Spent a 30 minute diversion snapping photos and promised to return.

Beautiful and Tranquil!
Nov 2017 • Couples
At the end of a 9 day trip to Germany (Bavaria mostly), we were staying in Ludwisburg and found ourselves with a free day before we had to be at our hotel in Frankfurt to make our morning flight. In looking around at things to do , the short drive to Calw looked like it could be a good one.

This was a beutiful location, we were the only ones at the ruins and it was stunning. I would highly recommend visiting not only here , but the original abbey in town. The cafe just need to the schloss was amazing. It was like stepping back into a Grimm tale and the hospitality was incredible.

Peaceful!
Aug 2017 • Family
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 found it to be beautiful and charming. My 8 year old son especially liked roaming about and climbing on the walls. We are on vacation here and I was aiming to find somewhere to visit that was a short trip, easy to find, and didn't involve a guided tour with "please do not touch" signs.
The church is just lovely, we enjoyed popping in for a look.
We popped in to the adorable cafe there for cake and espresso. Friendly staff, good cake.
We parked in the small lot across the street from the entrance. We visited on a Monday afternoon, virtually no traffic and there were only two sets of families visiting the grounds at the time.
Lovely, quick visit, would recommend if you're in the area.

Free attraction! Beautiful area!
Feb 2016 • Couples
Located in the same place as the Abbey. These ruins are a great stop. If you are looking for something to do on a Sunday since most things are closed this is a great little day outing. If you are looking for budget friendly thing to do this is free. The area is just beautiful. There are no tours or audio guides since this is an open air ordeal. The ruins are pretty flat so it is great for all ages. Parking is right across the street from the ruins.

Lovely place with a great little cafe
Aug 2016 • Family
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 roof is missing. Once you come closer you see it's surrounded by a lot of newer buildings but it doesn't take much away from the special feeling you get when walking around. The children enjoyed running around and climbing on them any walls. After the walk we had a coffee in the Kloster cafe, a beautiful place where you can sit outside and enjoy the views. This place is really worth a visit for an hour or so.
