Rheinfall-Route

Culture, nature, history. This circular trip offers a fusion of all three elements. Starting from the Old Town of Schaffhausen and continuing along the Rhine to the convent church, Kloster Rheinau, whilst passing the magnificent Rhine Falls on the way.
Feel Schaffhausen's charm and experience the well-preserved, traffic-free historical Old Town with its magnificent location right by the Rhine. The Museum zu Allerheiligen relays the special cultural history. Enjoy the views over the rooftops of the town and the unique Rhine scenery from Schaffhausen’s famous landmark, the Munot Fortress.

During the topographically pleasant bicycle ride downstream, past the largest waterfall in Europe, the Rhine Falls, you will reach the convent church, Klosterkirche Rheinau. The convent church is one of the most important sacred buildings in Switzerland. Particularly the interior décor that dates back to the years between 1710 to 1759 overwhelms the churchgoer with its splendour and opulence.
