Excursion destinations in Schaffhausen

Schaffhausen Switzerland

Because of the many oriels and the preciously painted house facades, Schaffhausen’s old town is traffic-free as one of the most picturesque in Switzerland. Many beautiful guild and town houses date from the Gothic or Baroque period.

The Rhine falls – Europe’s largest waterfall

travel outside Germany with the 9-euro ticket
The Rhine falls, Schaffhausen Switzerland

Almost 500 cubic meters of water fall 23 meters every second over a width of 150 meters. Only two lonely rocks in the middle have so far withstood the roaring water power. The Swiss flag proudly flutters on the larger of the two.

Experienced captains from the “Rhyfall-Mändli” maneuver small covered ferry boats there through the hissing and spraying cauldron, with courageous tourists on board. After a shaky boat exit, the passengers climb up ladders and steps on the rocks to the Swiss flag. The water is raging around them, and the spray draws wide plumes.

Świnoujście beach (west of the Świna)

The Świnoujście beach (west of the Świna) has fine sand and is almost 3 km long. Świnoujście is on the spit part of the coast, which means that the sand that is carried away in other places on Usedom settles here and ensures that the coastline moves further and further north – that is why the beaches in Świnoujście are particularly wide.
