Scenic Schwäbisch Hall

So, enough whining about my immigation issues. Because class starts at literally the crack of dawn, we have the afternoons free. Sometimes there is a break in the drizzle, so I've had a chance to do a bit of sightseeing.

As previously mentioned, Schwäbisch Hall has a lot of well-preserved buildings from the Medieval period, and is also very scenic. I've taken some photos as a sampler.

Riverfront; note the ubiquitous half-timbered buildings

The Comburg, a Benedictine monastery / fortress
Some of the Comburg church decor
The interior of the Comburg church is done in the Baroque style, which can be summarized as "if it is physically possible to coat this in gold, then we should do it".  It's a bit (okay, a lot) over the top, but impressively shiny nonetheless.
