  • 15 Marktplatz Recommended Recommended

    Architecture, castles and historic districts

    Am Markt D - 74523 Schwaebisch-Hall

    The square is dominated by the monumental steps leading to the church of St. Michael. Only the characteristic alignment of the half-timbered houses, spared by the fire of 1728, still reminds us of what the town must have looked like in the 17C.

  • 19 Abbey Church of Ottobeuren Recommended Recommended

    Religious buildings

    Sebastian-Kneipp Str. 1 D - 87724 Ottobeuren

    The squat outside appearance of the church gives no clue to its actual size: 480m long, with 80m towers. Inside, the visitor is struck by the luminosity and varied colours of the frescoes. The solid, amply proportioned transept crossing is surmounted..
