CH-8260 Stein am Rhein


Old town

Stein am Rhein is a town in the canton of Schaffhausen in Switzerland. It is situated on the river Rhine, at the westend of Lake Constance (Untersee). It is famous for its medieval town centre, including many half-timbered houses and frescoes. The town is split across the Rhine, with the old town centre on the North side.


Stein am Rhine was just a small fishing village until 1007, when St. Georges's abbey was moved there. Stein am Rhine was at an intersection between major roadways and the river, and both the town and the abbey prospered. The town now has a population of a little over 3000, and is a popular tourist destination.

Burg Hohenklingen, Dachgeschoss

Die Burg Hohenklingen ist eine Burganlage bei Stein am Rhein im Kanton Schaffhausen in der Schweiz. Sie liegt fast 200 Meter oberhalb des Städtchens auf einem schmalen, von Ost nach West verlaufenden Nagelfluhgrat, dem Schiener Berg.

Die Burg Hohenklingen blieb im Verlauf ihrer Geschichte von kriegerischen Zerstörungen verschont. Ihre Silhouette mit Mauern und Dächern entspricht auch heute noch dem mittelalterlichen Erscheinungsbild von 1200 bis 1422.
