One of the best attractions in Schwabisch Hall. Nice view and beautiful walk all the way up to the fortress. Don´t skip this place if you are in the area.

The Kloster Grosscomburg is a must in Schwäbisch Hall. It is an excellent preserve construction from 1070 aC with a very good view of the surroundings It doesn't matter what time of the year you go, it is awesome. The negative part is they don't open all the edification.

By the time we arrived, the Comburg was closed and locked up for the day, but we wandered around its extensive grounds, walked along the covered outer wall, which is original. There is a lovely cathedral, but unable to see interior. There is also a small chapel in the octagonal building, also locked, alas. But it looks much older than... More

Beautiful setting. Walkable from Schwabisch Hall but be prepared for a steep uphill climb. It is worth it. Entry to the church only as part of a tour which is in German. Our guide did provide some English explanations to us, (We were 2 of the 8 people on the tour.) The tour emphasized the chandelier and the antependium, both... More

The Grosscomburg is a fortified monastery complex that sits high on a hill overlooking Steinbach and the town of Schwaebisch Hall. Recently refurbished, it dominates the local skyline day and night. It's bells frequently ring out over the local area and add to that feeling of timeless tradition and peaceful continuity so typical of old Germany. If you walk around... More

Definitely worth a visit! Make sure you check for opening hours before you go. The interior is even more amazing as the exterior. White stucco, gold painting, wonderful carvings. The church is home to many wonderful paintings. Wonderful setting, take your time and walk the grounds. Great for families, couples, singles. Visited several times over the past 40 years and...

This monastery is unique, a walled fortified monastery, actually a large church within a medieval castle. Just a pleasure to visit and revisit, and the large chandelier in the church is one of the few of this style. The monastery is open most of the time, but the church is used only a few times a year for holidays, and... More

Only have seen the exteriour, as the church was still closed. Would open a few days later, but by then we would have been in Oberau. Pitty, as seen on pix at the internet it must be nice. We took the steeper chapelway (crossway), but there is a carparking and then it is not that steep. We had a stroll... More
