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.

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