Schwäbisch Hall Travel Guide

Schwäbisch Hall (� clearlens -
Schwäbisch Hall.


Schwäbisch Hall is an enchanting traditional town filled with old, colourful timber-framed houses built on top of the fortified banks of the Kocher river.


Hall flourished in the Middle Ages thanks to the production of salt and coins. Emperor Frederick I Barbarossa established the Imperial Mint here in the 12th century, and Hall's silver coins got the name of Häller or Heller, a term later used for German coins valued at half a pfennig in the 19th century and until the demise of the Secod Reich in 1918. Schwäbisch Hall's last salt mine closed in 1925.
