    History of the Canton of Schaffhausen
    Today's canton of Schaffhausen was a city-state until 1798; his records begin in 1045. In the 11th century, the village of Schaffhausen, an old skipper's village, became the property of the Allerheiligen monastery founded there by the Counts of Nellenburg, and with it became directly imperial under the Staufers. After the citizens had gradually emancipated themselves from the rule of the abbot, the city was pledged to Austria by Ludwig the Bavarian in 1330, but regained its imperial immediacy in 1415 as a result of Duke Frederick's ostracism.
    In 1411 the new Schaffhausen guild constitution came into force. For the next 400 years, the 10 guilds and 2 societies of the patrician families dominated the political, economic and social life of the city-state of Schaffhausen. Beset by the Austrian nobility, Schaffhausen concluded a 25-year alliance with the Confederates in 1454, which was transformed into an eternal one on August 19, 1501. The reason for this admission to the Confederation was above all the previous active participation in the Swabian War

    It is rightly called the bay town, there is almost no house without it.

    The old town of Schaffhausen exudes an idyllic Swiss calm for me (despite the hustle and bustle). Numerous old buildings open up when you "meander" through the alleys.

    Schaffhausen is an old and tranquil town with a lot of half-timbered houses. A visit is definitely worth it 👍
