"I'll be in Crailsheim in early July on a business trip. During my evenings and weekend I would like to take in as much of the culture, scenery and attractions as possible. What do you suggest a first time visitor to Crailsheim and Germany for that matter should see. Thank you, Micky" (posted 06/17/2017)

Our holiday home is located near Crailsheim, but we live in Bad Dürkheim, about 160 km away. In Crailsheim itself, there are probably no great sights. Info on the Internet: https://www.crailsheim.de/kultur-freizeit/tourismus-stadtinfo/. In Schwäbisch Hall, at a distance of about 25 km from Kirchberg: Old Town, Historical Market Square, Town Hall, St. Michael's Church, St. Katharina Church, Urbanskirche, Groß- und Kleincomburg, Neubausaal, Hospitalkirche, Hällisch-Fränkisches Museum, Hohenloher Freilandmuseum, Fire Brigade Museum, Johanniterkirche, Kunsthalle Würth, Emil Schmidthaus and other museums. ,
