Germany Things to Do: 1,233 reviews and 1,985 photos


Lorsch is famous for its carolingian gate hall, one of the oldest historic buildings in Germany, dating back to the age of Charlemagne. The gate hall is also entrance to the remnants of a Benedictine monastery with a herb garden. The half-timbered Old Town Hall is also worthwhile seeing. Be aware though that there is not much else to see in Lorsch - so best include it in a daytrip combined with the towns of Heppenheim and Michelstadt in the vicinity.

Directions: roughly 1 hour south of Frankfurt
