Our 4 Land's Region - Schaffhausen / Rheinfall
Map
Also see :- Click To View the Schaffhausen Gallery

Schaffhausen  is a town with historic roots, a municipality in northern Switzerland and the capital of the canton of the same name. It has an estimated population of 36,000 and is located next to the shore of the High Rhine.

It is one of four Swiss towns located on the northern side of the Rhine together with Neuhausen am Rheinfall, the historic Neunkirch and the medieval town of Stein am Rhein.

The old town has many fine Renaissance era buildings decorated with exterior frescos and sculptures as well as the old canton fortress, the Munot.

Schaffhausen is also a railway junction for the Swiss and German railway networks. One of the lines connects the town with the nearby Rhine Falls in Neuhausen am Rheinfall which is Europe's largest Waterfall and a very popular tourist attraction.

Visitors can walk along the clifftops overlooking the Rheinfall and experience the Rhein River exploding into the basin at great speeds, and those who are more adventurous can take a cruiser ( the Rhyfall Maendli Schifffahrt ) which will battle its way against the currents to take you to the centre islands where you can go up the clifftops and get a birdseye view of the Rheinfall experience from all around you.

If dining with superb panoramic views is more to your liking why not visit the Insel Bistro for something to eat or visit the Schloessli Woerth nextdoor to view ancient artifacts from conquests gone by.

The town of Schaffhausen itself stands on the right bank of the River Rhine. It has an area of 41.85 km2 (16.16 sq mi) which is mainly used for agricultural purposes whilst other areas are forested.

In 1947 it merged with the former municipality of Buchthalen and its area expanded again in 1964 when Herblingen was absorbed and yet again for a third time in 2009 when Hemmental joined the municipality.

Schaffhausen shares an international border with the German village of Büsingen am Hochrhein, an exclave entirely surrounded by Switzerland.
