ViaRhenana

ViaRhenana

The route via the Untersee lake and Hochrhein river was for centuries Switzerland's most important waterway. Today, it follows the ViaRhenana from Kreuzlingen via Schaffhausen to Basel, through a varied landscape shaped by water.
The ViaRhenana links the historic waterway to Untersee and Hochrhein. It lives from the specific diversity of a river landscape, which is not only a natural habitat, but over long stretches also bears the characteristics of an ancient cultural landscape.

The ViaRhenana leads down rapids, through forests and water-meadows and links cultural centres with a European charisma, such as the towns of Konstanz, Schaffhausen and Basel, various health resorts and the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage of the Insel Reichenau. The Rheinfall (Rhine Falls), Switzerland's most visited tourist attraction, is on the ViaRhenana.

A host of options are available to travel on and along the water, on foot, by bike, ship or small boat. Combining them is one of the special attractions of the ViaRhenana. Especially attractive are the cruises between Konstanz and Schaffhausen or Rheinfelden and Basel, which offer the ideal return trip after a hike.
