This edifice is called home by the Munotwächters and the clock rings without fail each night once the clock strikes 9 pm.

Religious Sites

There are several churches found in Schaffhausen. One such place of worship is St. Johann Parish Church. The structure itself has Gothic elements but its interiors are made up of various styles. The Monastery of St. George is another religious building, and it is an exceptionally beautiful one. This is among the well preserved ancient monasteries in the country and is a source of pride. The monastery was established during the Roman times and during the 15th up to the 16th centuries, there were considerable structural changes made to the building.

The Modern Art Gallery is a place dedicated to the contemporary arts and one would be able to find exhibits of art works done by celebrated international artists.

Natural Beauty

Schaffhausen boasts of natural wonders that could only be found here. Rhine Falls is where tourists yearn to go first because of the exquisite picture it makes. Its huge size is also an added attraction and the waters here certainly flow magnificently. The Höhenzug of Randen is another natural beauty that provides a little something for each guest. Visitors could take a soothing walk on nice trails over the hills, through the fields and woods or they could also take part in an exciting bike adventure. Another flawless beauty is The Klettgau, which is the site where fine grapes are cultivated and the wines produced in this area are truly superb.
