We wish we had visited the inside of this very beautiful building. The architecture on the outside is very interesting and quite unique. Very charming structure in a very charming town.

Once you are in Stein am Rhein it is worth to visit this small museum. The most amazing things are the frescoes painted around 1500. The place makes you feel like in ancient times and the views to the Rhein are beatiful.
