Stein am Rhein is a historic town and a municipality in the canton of Schaffhausen in Switzerland. The town’s medieval centre retains the ancient street plan. The site of the city wall, and the city gates are preserved, though the former city wall now consists of houses. The medieval part of the town has been pedestrianised and many of the medieval buildings are painted with frescoes.

  • A very admirable town with calm and relaxing environment, perfect for a romantic evening walk and sunset photography.
  • Visibility to the sunset is very good.
  • Stein am Rhein railway station is situated on the opposite (southern) bank of the Rhine to the historic centre of the town, a walk of some 500 m (1,600 ft). It is served by services to Schaffhausen, St. Gallen, Rorschach and Winterthur; trains to Schaffhausen run every 30 minutes whilst other destinations are hourly.
  • A very quiet town in the evening so expect no one around.
