    The Comburg, also called Grosscomburg, is a former monastery of the Benedictines. It is today in the area of the city Schwäbisch Hall in the same district in the northeastern Baden-Württemberg.

    The entire monastery complex is surrounded by a ring wall with defensive towers from the 16th century, which gives the entire complex a fortified, castle-like character. Behind the inner gate, which is crowned by the Romanesque Michaelskapelle, is the "Alte Dekanei" with museum café and information center.

    The simple Romanesque cloister was partially reconstructed in 1965. Behind the south wing lies the Romanesque chapter house with numerous funerary monuments from the early 13th century, named after the noble family of the donations of Limpurg as Schenkenkapelle. Part of the Old Abbey is the Imperial Hall with Romanesque arcade windows.

    Most of the buildings of the Comburg are used by the State Academy for further education and personnel development in schools and the Catholic parish office and are therefore not or only with restrictions to visit.

    High above the Kocher Valley, the monastery Großcomburg stands proudly and majestically - a monument of European rank.

    Outside you can run around freely. So at least last Sunday. Going in is probably difficult without registration / guided tour.

    The Comburg, also called Grosscomburg, is a former monastery of the Benedictines.
    The Comburg lies on a circular mountain to the right of the Kochertal southeast of Schwäbisch Hall, with the Steinbach subdivision at its foot.

    Safe entrance for former castle residents. Interesting how well they could secure themselves. It was certainly hard to create such a fortress. Definitely worth seeing.

    Hexagonal central building (tower) built around 1230. With a beautiful front garden, but unfortunately was closed to the day.

    Beautiful preserved castle church, with about 800 m covered path with watch towers and shooting niches. Through this one has good vision.
