St. Michael, Schwabisch Hall

4.9
#1 of 10 in Historic Sites in Schwabisch Hall
Standing tall above the center of Schwabisch Hall, St. Michael houses carvings that exemplify the ingeniousness of Medieval German craftsmanship. You can reach the church via the main cobbled road, which leads directly to the entrance. On nice afternoons you may even see a theater troupe performing on the chapel steps, or step inside to perhaps catch a private concert on the pipe organ. Be sure to include the church crypt in your tour. You'll get a glimpse of the church's darker history when you see the neatly stacked pile of bones stored in a glass case.

    This church is an imposing monument. It is located in the market square, right in front of the Town Hall and in one of the most beautiful of the city of Schwäbisch Hall. As we commented, during certain times of the year this place becomes one of the most important performing arts in the South of Germany and stair from the Cathedral, the main protagonist, since here are works and concerts are given. We were eager to see one: would have loved to be able to enjoy this experience. Tip: If you go with time, inform you to see if you can get tickets to see a play outdoors on the steps of the Church. It has to be a unique experience (although not understand language)!

    On the grand staircase of the Church St. Michael many theatrical and musical performances of the open-air theatre are held in summer Schwäbisch Hall. Serious plays like also the light musical with depth can be seen here: as currently "Maria, it taste not!" -a wonderful musicals comedy with an excellent "Antonio Marcipane" and a super ensemble. Front of the Church of St. Michael. The Church itself worth a visit because of the architecture and its history with the hotel's own reformer BRENZ, a contemporary of Martin Luther. As at all the main city Schwäbisch Hall and surrounding landscape so reminiscent are a true profit, if you take the rewarding time for a visit. Take the the time in Schwäbisch Hall to spend a few days alone!

  • Beautiful and quiet, worth to take a visit, about 20~30 min
  • What an absolutely lovely cathedral. Shows the dedication of the locals who built it over the years.
  • A very nice place to visit. It's almost in the center of Schwäbisch Hall. You can find nice restaurants around this to wine and dine. This is the perfect place to take pictures if you go there as tourist.
  • Very interesting, beautiful place to visit. Easy to see the transformation from Romanesque to Gothic and some of the chapels have Baroque decor. The view is splendid.
  • See inside for the bones
