Schaffhausen is always worth a visit. For me it is exciting to walk through the alleys and squares of the old town.Today I want to go left-Rhenish to the Rhine Falls, there by boat to the other bank, then up the stairs on the fall and right-Rhenish back to town.It is very easy to get here by train.Overall, the path can be walked well.As a transition to the south bank, I choose the barrage. There you can feel the power of the Rhine for the first time. The path then leads over long stretches under shady trees. In any case, it is worth taking a detour to the small peninsula in the Rhine just before the path to Laufen Castle climbs. This is where the first water stages of the Rhine Falls begin. You stand right next to it and can hang your feet in it.There is a free exit to the boats at the castle. I choose the exit from the castle courtyard for 5 SFr (can be purchased at a machine in the courtyard). Only then can I get to the grotto and the viewing platform directly on or above the fall. It's breathtaking how the spray wets your skin!Often the boats go to the opposite bank in shuttle operation. You can buy a ticket from 3 SFr "simply" at the counter at the landing stage.Then I walk around the large basin of the falls, up the stairs right next to the water, and the hiking trail along the Rhine.The path leads me up a long steep staircase under the railroad. There I have a nice view back over the natural spectacle and walk through a small park back to the Obertorturm and from there to the train station.My impression ?Overall, the trip was very worth it. I will visit the old town and the various sights such as the Munot another time. The waterfall, which only appeared in this form after the last ice age, is an experience in summer when the water level in Lake Constance is high (but also in winter when the grotto is iced over when the temperature is below zero).

Hello Ewu, thank you for all of your interesting information and participation. While reading your comments I really felt like repeating your tour .... 🥰👍🥰
I'm glad if you like it too, Malizia.
Hello Ewu, really a cool tour! 👍It's a worthwhile option, especially now with all the water🤩. thanks for the tip
Thank you Beate. Maybe you allow yourself a little more time in the city than I did.
Thank you for the tip dear Ewu👍!Could it be that picture 9 was a lavatory or that water was poured out through the gap? I mean, I've read something like that ... 🤔
I am currently reading a book about the Middle Ages. That's why it looks the same for me ... 🤓
I'm also interested in things like that. 👍It would be worthwhile to take part in a city tour. That would be explained for sure ...!Have a nice evening 🤩
