STEIN AM RHEIN

STEIN AM RHEIN MEDIEVAL VILLAGE ON THE RHINE

 

Stein am Rhein is one of the most beautiful and well preserved medieval towns in Switzerland, famous for its splendid frescoed houses and characteristic alleyways and views.

 

  

Stein am Rhein is a small pearl offering a rich combination of art, culture and nature, magnificent house façades embracing the town square and generous choice of gastronomic specialities.

The town is set in a unique landscape, where Lake Constance (Bodensee) once again becomes the Rhine. The entire old town is pedestrian so it's really nice to take a walk away from the traffic.

 

"Stein am Rhein. Open air Works of art where Lake Constance becomes the Rhine."

 

High above, overlooking the old town, lies Hohenklingen Castle, which offers a magnificent view of the Rhine, Lake Constance and the colourful, labyrinth like, town.

 

In summer, Stein Am Rhein can also be reached by scheduled boats from Schaffhausen to Kreuzlingen. A good starting point for a trip on the river or lake. 

This region is also a great place to go cycling and walking thanks to the numerous cycle paths that connect the main tourist attractions.
