Schaffhausen Overview

Schaffhausen is a city in Northern Switzerland and the capital of the Swiss Kanton with the same name. It has a population of 35,000 inhabitants and it's located near the German border.

It was mistakenly bombed by the USAF during WWII thinking that this was Germany, but there are many remains of its renaissance past (buildings, towers and doors from the 18th Century). Over the mediaeval Old Town of Schaffhausen looms the imposing Munot fortress.

The most remarkable touristic point of Schaffhausen is the Rheinfall located in Neuhausen, the point where the Rhine River was born. It is a spectacular waterfall which deserves your visit.
