    A historic walk along the River Kocher. The Fachwerk (timber) houses are magnificent.
    The Kocher is a 169 km-long right tributary of the Neckar in the north-eastern part of Baden-Württemberg, Germany. The name "Kocher" originates from its Celtic name "cochan" and probably means winding, meandering river.Read more

    Day 5b. Schwäbisch Hall

    August 9, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Day 5. Schwäbisch Hall.
    Jurgen Elsser gave as a detailed tour of the town and it's history. It was better than any tour we have paid for in the past. It was not only free but he took us home and fed us.
    The town is in the heart of Hohenlohe-Franken near Stuttgart in Baden-Württemberg. It was founded in 1156 and also had an own currency called the "Haller Heller". They had their own currency was called Taler (large silver piece) and Batzen (small nickel piece).
    The wealth and the importance of the Schwäbisch Hall was founded on salt. The old saltmaker's town is dissected by the river Kocher. It has a partially preserved town wall, many towers, roofed wooden bridges, a huge number of stairs and 'stäffele' or stair-like lanes, as well as nearly unchanged medieval lanes.

    Day 5c. Schwäbisch Hall

    August 9, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Schwäbisch Hall tour with friend Jürgen Elsser. We visited the kulturhistorische Hällisch-Fränkische Museum and viewed a model of the city before the devastating fire of 1728. The wooden salt fountain used for salt extraction from the water can be seen in the model and on the walking tour located in Haalplatz. Schwäbisch Hall was a wealthy city due to its high salt production and salt trading.Read more

    Johanniter Kirche Art Museum. 14-17th Century Old Masters of the Würth Art Collection.

    The 12th century Hospitalers' church was re-opened as a museum in November 2008. The extensively refurnished building has become a branch of the Kunsthalle Würth arts gallery. The perfect accommodation of the important stock of old masters from the Würth Collection that includes the former Prince of Fürstenberg's picture treasure and many new purchases.
    This top-class collection devoted to art from the German South West - including the region around Lake Constance and Northern Switzerland - from the late Middle Ages to the beginnings of the modern age.
    The art- and cultural-historical importance of these works has to be rated this highly because most of the panel paintings date back to a period from which only very few drawings or paintings have survived - owing to the Reformation iconoclasm which was enforced particularly radically in Swabia.
    The phenomenal Family of Wild People by Lucas Cranach the Elder and a whole range of works from his workshop with religious scenes, secular didactic works and portraits have survived.

    Das war mal wieder ein schöner Besuch bei einem alten Freund! Leider war das Wetter sehr schlecht, sodass unsere geplante Fahrradtour ausfallen musste. Stattdessen haben wir dem Würth Museum in Schwäbisch Hall einen Besuch abgestattet und zwei schöne gemeinsame Abende verliebt

    Anreise

    April 22, 2019 in Germany ⋅ 🌙 10 °C

    Den Trip nach Panama habe ich relativ spontan gebucht. Dank eines Direktflugs von Frankfurt Main - der inkl. Anfahrt mit dem Zug ab Stuttgart 150€ günstiger war als direkt von Frankfurt aus - startete meine Reise am 22.04.2019

    22.04.2019:
    4:00 Uhr - Schwäbisch Hall: Mein Wecker klingelt.
    Nach einer Dusche geht's mit dem Auto zum Bahnhof in Hessental.
    5:23 Uhr: - Hessental: Abfahrt nach Stuttgart mit der Regionalbahn
    7:24 Uhr - Stuttgart: im ICE nach Frankfurt.
    Rail & Fly gefällt mir sehr gut: Entspannte Anfahrt ohne Parkplatzsuche und Stau. Gepäckabgabe direkt nach dem Verlassen der Bahn.

    In Frankfurt habe ich genug Aufenthalt. Nach einem Kaffee und einem kleinen Frühstück bleibt noch Zeit für ein wenig Reiselektüre.
    12:10 Uhr - Frankfurt: Boarding.
    Ich komme zu meinem Platz... Irgendwas stinkt...
    Es ist Alex... Mein Sitznachbar aus Russland... 11h Flug... Ich hatte schon bessere Erfahrungen😅
    Die Vorfreude überwiegt trotzdem.
    Außerdem ist der Service spitze und sowohl Essen als auch verschiedenste Getränke sehr gut.
    Beste Unterhaltung durch Bohemian rapsody und einen biografischen Coldplayfilm.

    Immigration und auf mit dem Taxi zum Busbahnhof Albrook.
