Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    In my experience, it is very unusual to find museums with good collections but free entrance in Germany. This is one of those rare places.
    It is a modern art museum. You can download the app and read/listen to the descriptions of some of the pieces exhibited there, in multiple languages. The descriptions besides the exhibits are only in German.

    St. Michael is first documented in 1156. Throughout the 15th and 16th century modifications were made on this church. There are many beautiful works of art in here, please check out all the pictures and descriptions I post. We walked up the many stairs of the bell tower, it was gorgeous to look out over this beautiful town. Historic, glorious sounding bells that were made from 1299 - 1538 are easily visible as you climb the steps of the bell tower. The high altar with the "Passion and Resurrection of Jesus" was completed in 1460. Other altars are here form the 16th century. The main, big ,crucifix is dated to 1494. This is a must see church in a must see town!

    I've been to the Hohenloher Freilandmuseum (or Wackershofen as it's generally known, due to the village in which it is located) and never been let down. The "park" is beautiful and very expansive, the buildings in a good state of repair and the museum is very informative. There are frequent worthwhile and interesting events to attend and the food offered is also great. (Tip: Go to the Besen if you can and have their 'Board' - if you can manage it all!)
    Probably the best attraction in the local area and worth a journey too.

    Delightful terrace overlooking the neighbouring square and church. Excellent espresso. Lots of tarts on offer if you feel so inclined.

    The monastery can be reached by bus number 4 from the train station (not very frequent on weekend) or by walking (a bit uphill but not difficult). It is free to walk around. I was lucky to find the guided tour the day I went there (only in German and only at specific times). It costs 5 euros and lets you see the inside of the St. Nicholas church (which otherwise remains locked - I don't know if only during these Covid years or always). Check the website for latest information.

    A small but superb collection of old masters paintings and sculptures. The quality matches that of the big world-renowned art museums. As it is part of the collection Würth it has free entry. If you are not sure whether you like this stuff, this is the place to try and find out. If you already know you like it: there's several paintings by Lucas Cranach the Elder, a Holbein, a Matthias Grünewald that I really liked. Also some magnificent wooden sculptures by Tilman Riemenschneider.

    Do look up as well. The setting in an old church is lovely. And the wooden beams supporting the roof certainly deserve your attention also. Go to the small balcony for even better viewing.

    So, so beautiful! We walked this town all over, it is maybe the most picturesque town I have ever seen. Walking along the Kocher River, crossing the timber bridge to Biergarten Unterwöhrd, the shops along the way are quaint. You will not able to take enough pictures.

    For a museum that was free of charge, the exhibition is well laid out and interesting. From millions of year old fossils through the Stone Age to the fascinating history of the salt trade times.
    Worth a visit and go right to the top of one of the tallest and oldest buildings of the town.
    The many shooting targets are fascinating.

    Nice spot in the old city, with Johanniterkirche and some halftimbered houses which reflect beautifully in the water.
    While you are there don't forget to visit the Johanniterkirche. Even if you don't like the high quality collection of old masters (free entrance) still the wooden beam construction of its roof is impressive to see.

    Excellent building on an overall beautiful square filled with grand old buildings. There is a strange modern sculpture at one of its corners. Come early in the morning to have the square to yourself.

    Stopped 3 nights here and was impressed by the area. There a few bridges and lots of nice views. Great for photography.

    Im only sad that I can no longer ride a bike, because I will miss this lovely cycle path. It is also possible to enjoy parts of it on foot. We have had some truly memorable and romantic day trips exploring this lovely stretch of countryside along the lazy Kocher river. Its like being lost in time as you pass through stretches of picturesque woodland and tiny, old villages. We recommend stopping for a beer and lunch at Braunshbach if you pass through this friendly village

    Gothic fish fountain built in 1509, depicting St. Michael slaying a dragon, a lynx and a lion. This a a fish holder for selling at the market that was located here. Not a destination reason, but a cool thing to see while you're here.

    One of the best views in town. You have water, grass and trees, halftimbered houses and the Neubau and a few church towers towering above it.

    The main bridge in the old town, once you come from the shopping area. Quite a nice bridge with views over the nice buildings, on both sides of the river.
