    The monastery was founded in about 778. According to legend, a rich nobleman fell asleep while fishing in his boat in Schaffhausen and was driven downstream. He didn't even wake up when the boat crashed down the Rhine Falls. When he woke up, he noticed that he had been driven ashore an hour below the Rhine Falls. Out of thanks to God for his wonderful salvation, he founded a monastery here, the Benedictine abbey Rheinau.
