Beach at the Rhine, Schaffhausen

Today I went to this very nice little beach area at the Rhine, Schaffhausen, I *think* it's called Fluhingen correct me if I am wrong), it the small bridge next to the big one in Schaffhausen and then your turn right.

There is a grass and sand area, older peeps walk a bit back, enter the Rhine and let the current take them down the Rhine. The current is quite strong so small kids shouldn't venture out too far but I have 4 kids ranging 2 till 13 years old and I was totally comfortable letting them frolic around.

We had a wonderful afternoon and from now on will call it "Playa del Rhine"

Re: Beach at the Rhine, Schaffhausen

Cannot find a Fluhingen. Could it be Flurlingen?

Re: Beach at the Rhine, Schaffhausen

quite a few kids (including the big variety) jump off the upstream bridge into the river. there's a second badi further upstream which is closed off. also the KSS outdoor and indoor pool with fun slides etc. in the breite area if you haven't seen that yet...

Re: Beach at the Rhine, Schaffhausen

I heard of the KSS but do prefer it a little smaller so I can watch the younger ones easier...We saw the kids jump of the bridge and my 13 yr old was like: I am so going to do that next time, but Mum is not sure yet

Re: Beach at the Rhine, Schaffhausen

Flurlingen Widely regarded as the most exclusive location in the area, Flurlingen is a small wine-growing commune of only 1,800 people. Expats lucky enough to secure accommodation in this highly sought after commune have a choice between living in the new purpose-built apartments or in a traditional 18th century wood-framed house.

Flurlingen is not just a pretty face: the commune boasts what is arguably the best primary school in the area as well as one of the lowest tax rates in the area making it the number one choice for highly paid expats as well as young families.
