Bad Urach is a modern city where History is visible throughout. Strolling through the city centre and over the central marketplace, the magnificent half-timbered houses from the 15th and 16th centuries are particularly eye-catching.
The former residence of the Counts of Württemberg, Urach has a lot to offer: the historic market square with a late-Gothic fountain, the residential palace with interiors from the Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque periods, the late-Gothic church of St. Amandus with a monk’s courtyard and the weavers’ suburb. Not to forget the numerous half-timbered houses that characterize the image of the city center. The impressive town hall was built around 1440 and is the defining building on the beautiful market square.
