Stein am Rhein is simply a must see if you are in Switzerland. Even though I had seen photos of this before we visited, the photos honestly cannot do justice to this stunning little town. Unfortunately for us we had only a short while to...More

Well worth a visit to view the shop fronts, clock tower & old buildings. Good to stop for lunch & then walk along the river. Lovely.

Perfect location for a quick detour from your busy itinerary. Beautiful Swiss village with many shops and can have lunch and enjoy the fresh air since there's barely any traffic. Spend an hour and you can pretty much get this place covered.

Great city to visit with amazing architecture and unparalleled views of the Rhine. Food is pricey so eat before you go.
