Rüdlingen

Rüdlingen lies in the largest continuous expanse of wetland in Switzerland. The picturesque village surrounded by vineyards offers activities in and on the water and happily relates many tales of its own grisly history.
Rüdlingen was probably founded in the 5th century by the Alemanni and belonged to the St. Gallen monastery into the Late Middle Ages. Today, Rüdlingen, together with its neighbouring village Buchberg, is an exclave of Canton Schaffhausen and borders on Canton Zurich and Germany to the north.

Once a farming and fishing village, Rüdlingen experienced an economic boom in the 1970s and today counts as a residential community. Although in recent years it has seen a noticeable reduction in the number of farms, agriculture still plays a significant role. The village scene is shaped and determined by the course of the year in the vineyards.

Wine lovers are totally in their element in the local restaurants, which mainly serve local wine.

The pride of the municipality is the well-kept, historic village centre and the Rhine, which flows around the village. Between 1882 and 1958, the natural course of the Rhine was contained to a certain degree by various corrections to the flow to protect agricultural land from flooding.

In the 19th century, the joint construction of a church caused differences between Rüdlingen and Buchberg and the municipalities separated. Nothing of this dispute can now be felt. The two villages still form one parish and the Rhine flows less temperamentally from Rüdlingen to Buchberg than it once did.

A strange, spooky shiver runs over Rüdlingen if the legends that circulate around the village are to be believed. Whether the so-called Stammpichtier, a monster in the nearby forest, still prophesizes changes in the weather, or s'Güllejümpferli, the maiden from the pond, still doesn't want to be disturbed in death, can only be determined by a visit to the village.

Highlights

  • WWF beaver educational trail – explore the beavers' habitat along a four-kilometre trail from the boat landing stage in Rüdlingen.
  • Naturzentrum (Nature Centre) Thurauen – the Nature Centre offers interactive exhibitions as well as barbecue spots and children's playgrounds.
  • Buchberg-Rüdlingen church – enjoy spectacular views over Rüdlingen, the Rhine and Thurauen from high above the vineyards and river.
