Youth Hostel
Schwäbisch Hall

Portrait

Not worth a cent? Not at all! Schwäbisch Hall has a unique old part of town, great museums, and many excursion options. No stretch of land in Germany has so many castles as Hohenlohe region. In the first half of the 16th century, the reformer Johannes Brenz founded - here in the former Free Imperial City - the first "German" school and a Latin school, which became a grammar school in 1655 - one of the oldest in the German-speaking world.

The scenic Kocher river flows through the town. The "Burgenstraße" ("Castle Road"), the "Kocher-Jagst Radweg" ("Kocher-Jagst cycle path") and the Way of St James all go through Schwäbisch Hall.

In the summer, the curtain rises on the famous open-air festival on the large flight of stairs in front of the church of St Michael. Art fans are attracted to the Kunsthalle Würth. Car fans are drawn to Langenburg Castle and its car museum. And anyone wishing to see the Swabian-Hall Swine will go to the Freilandmuseum (open-air museum) in Wackershofen. A British film magnate wanted to stop in Schwäbisch Hall for a short coffee break - and stayed for eight days. He was right to do so.

  • The hostel is located at high altitude with views of the town and just a 5-minute walk away from the town centre.
