Hohenlohe Cultural Landscape

Die Comburg in Schwäbisch Hall

The Schwäbisch Hall District is situated in the northeast area of Baden-Württemberg and forms part of the Heilbronn-Franconia Region.
The District has a population of around 190,000 spread over an area of 1,484 km². It is therefore the fourth largest District in Baden-Württemberg in terms of size. This clearly proves that the District is still very rural with delightful open countryside. The main centres are the large district towns of Crailsheim and Schwäbisch Hall, which both have more than 30,000 inhabitants. The town of Gaildorf is the centre of the Limpurg region.

Ansicht Kirchberg/Jagst

The landscape of the District is divided into the fertile Hohenlohe Plain in the north and the Franconian-Swabian Keuper Mountains in the south. They are characterised by large recreational areas and forests (Mainhardt Forest, Waldenburg Mountains, Limpurg Mountains, Ellwanger Mountains). The landscape changes between plateaus and deep valleys with the protected valley sides of the Kocher and Jagst along with their tributaries.

Sights well worth seeing include the picturesque residences of the Princes of Hohenlohe (Langenburg, Kirchberg/Jagst, Bartenstein), the noble Schenken Family of Limpurg (Obersontheim, Gaildorf) and the Lords of Vellberg. The Hohenlohe region has been dubbed the “Region of Castles” due to these residences.
