New to Schaffhausen

Hello
I'm Rachael and moved here 2 months ago from the US. Living in Schaffhausen now with my husband and trying to keep busy while I'm making myself at home. Any suggestions on things to do/see?

Re: New to Schaffhausen

Greetings. Schaffhausen is a lovely place.

I take it you've visited all the local attractions, but in case not:

-The Rheinfall is always worth a trip - http://www.rheinfall.ch/

-Climbing the stairs to the Munot to get a good view over Schaffhausen - http://www.munot.ch/

It's not a long train journey to go to Zurich, either direct (1 hour) or changing at Winterthur (40mins) and you are open to a world of other stuff to do (including meeting other people from here - can't comment on that as I've not tried it yet!).

Is that the place where there is a steepish hill and a restaurant on top in the middle of nowhere?

Re: New to Schaffhausen

Thanks for the warm welcome!

I've been to the Rheinfall and the Munot, but I will have to check out the other place. Thanks!!!

Yeah meeting people is always difficult when you feel like you can't communicate with anybody!

Re: New to Schaffhausen

also make a trip to stein am rhein (can do so by boat) and also many forests around you can explore. bit cold now, but in summer there are various badi's you can go to along the river.
