Where to Live in Schaffhausen

Hi, I will be moving to Schaffhausen this summer! In terms of housing are some areas of Schaffhausen more desirable than others? I am an American stay at home mom of 3 kids who will be attending the International School. Factors I will consider are proximity to the school (though I hear everyone drives to school?), walking to fun stuff like parks, river, village, etc. Also is there an area where many expats live or not really? I appreciate your advice!

Re: Where to Live in Schaffhausen

Welcome!

My kids attend ISSH as well. We live in a neighboring town. In Schaffhausen the most popular area is Breite amongst the Expat community but don't focus on that as you will find lots of acquaintances once the kids go to school. Areas you can look which are close to the school are:

Stetten
Merishausen
Beringen
Neuhausen am Rheinfall
Dachsen
Flürlingen
Nohl
Rheinau

All of these villages are within 20 minutes of the school.

Please contact me by pm if you have more questions.

Re: Where to Live in Schaffhausen

Hello! My oldest child is at ISSH, too. We live in Stetten, which is only about a 5 minute drive from the school, and we really like it so far. SwissAstrid is right, though, you'll make plenty of friends once you're at the school, so don't base where you live on needing to be in an ex-pat community. Feel free to PM me when you get here and I can try to answer any questions you might have.

Hi Amazonmom! My family and I will be moving to Beringen around the 1st of September. We found a great flat that was finishing up with the build and snagged the top floor appt. (it had 5 bedrooms and 3 baths which is a rarity we have found out!!).

Maybe once we all get settled in we can connect?! I'm on the lookout for other SAHM's who will be living in the area. As far as schools go though, we found a great local school that's only about a 2-3 minute walk from our flat. We considered going international but we wanted our girls (ages 7 and 2) to get the full Swiss experience and know the neighbor kids, but to each his own.

Good luck in your search and don't forget to check out Beringen. Maybe we'll see you around!!

Re: Where to Live in Schaffhausen

So glad I found this thread --even if its already 2 years old ;P
I've been scrolling through the EF and just reading everything.. getting more worried (instead of relieved) after every post. But after reading this, I saw there were more SAHMs in Schaff and I'm now more excited and happy with the move. I have more questions but won't hijack this thread. I'll just PM and post a new one if you girls don't mind. Just wanted to post a "THANK YOU and talk to you soon" note.
