Stein am Rhein, a picturesque country town in the county of Schaffhausen, is a medieval gem that exudes tranquility and charm - painted facades, pretty oriels and a riverside promenade invite you to stroll and enjoy the sights. The square is bordered by houses with painted facades and neat bays, and by splendid half-timbered houses. Overlooking the town is the Castle of Hohenklingen, built into the forest and vineyards. St. Georgen, a very well preserved Benedictine Cloister, was built from the 14th to the 16th century, and is, together with the museum, well worth visiting.

Location:
Stein am Rhein is situated where the Rhine River leaves the Bodensee (Lake Constance).
