Schöntal is a town and municipality in the district of Hohenlohe in Baden-Württemberg in Germany.

It is principally known as the location of the former Schöntal Abbey, a magnificent Baroque monastery.

The Schöntal municipality was formed in 1972 by merging the eight municipalities of Aschhausen, Berlichingen, Bieringen, Marlach, Oberkessach, Schöntal (today known as Kloster Schöntal, Schöntal Abbey), Sindeldorf and Westernhausen. In 1973, the municipality of Winzenhofen was also incorporated.
