"People, cars and history" is the motto of the German Automobile Museum Langenburg. Not only cars are presented, but also motorcycles and stories about important personalities in the automotive industry. The exhibits change regularly. So there is something new to discover every time you visit. The museum is housed in the former royal stables not far from the castle.
The Museum in the medieval city centre shows history, art and culture of the former Imperial city Schwäbisch Hall and its surrounding on more than 3000 square meters. It includes over seven connected historical buildings with the Keckenturm, an eight-storey residential tower as the centre, and it is based on the collection of the historical society for Württemberg Franconia.
The museum village in the Schwäbisch Hall district of Wackershofen lies nestled in a beautiful hilly landscape. It includes 70 reconstructed buildings from four centuries, which were originally located in different places of the region. The faithfully furnished houses, old breeds of domestic animals, days of action like "cooking in old farmhouse kitchens" as well as craftsmen shows take the visitors back in time.

The elaborate overall renovation of the Johanniterkirche (a secularized church building from the 12th century) has now been completed. As the associated gallery of Kunsthalle Würth, Johanniterkirche is now the ideal home for the collection of Old Masters within the Würth Collection. Some preserved exhibits of its former equipment could be returned as permanent loans. 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. Numerous panel paintings by the Master of Meßkirch or the panels of the highly significant St. Anthony altarpiece by the Zurich Master of the Pansies have to be emphasized as well.
