Strangely enough, the back doesn't come off so I can't post a photo of the back of the movement and I don't see how it comes out of the cabinet.

No, the back won't come off and it doesn't need to. The movement slides out forwards (disconnect the weights and pendulum before doing so).

Thanks for your help. I bought it at an estate sale for $30. Originally it was $75 but no one wanted it. What its fate would have been otherwise is unknown.
Anyway, it is safe now in my living room.

It doesn't work. Is there anything I can do or should I just take it to a clock repair shop?
It doesn't "tick" and there is no movement.

Unfortunately, if you contact a repair shop, it will likely be $ 500 or more to have it serviced. Many clock repairers do not want work on the modern movement particularly Hermle that are considered generally poorer quality. They prefer to replace with a new movement to avoid home service calls to get a stopped clock running again.
