The town of Schwäbisch Hall, often referred to simply as Hall, was the site of salt processing in bygone days. Today it offers astonishing views of huge half-timbered houses nestled together next to the river Kocher looking more like a film set than a genuine town. Make sure you bring your camera!
Langenburg is home to the Langenburg castle which is still privately owned by the Hohenlohe-Langenburg family. It was built in 1226 in the Renaissance style with a wonderful Baroque garden which sees open days each year. If the stunning building wasn’t enough there is also a museum well worth a visit.
If culture is of interest to you, why not look closer at Crailsheim which each year celebrates its survival after a two year siege in 1379.
Alternatively, the nationally-renowned resort town of Vellberg lays on an annual wine tasting festival that would be a shame to miss. ;-)
