Schwäbisch Hall is in Baden-Württemberg, Germany.
In more modern times Schwäbisch Hall is a household name mostly due to the Bausparkasse headquartered there and named after the town. Another claim to fame is its twice German champion American Football team, that also produced the first European ever to be drafted without playing College Football in North America.
