Stein am Rhein

Free admission

The basics

The town is commonly visited on half- or full-day tours from Zurich, often in combination with Europe’s most powerful waterfall, Rhein Falls. Other tours visit as part of a wider exploration of central Europe—taking advantage of its proximity to the Swiss border to tick it off on the way to or from Lichtenstein, Austria, or southern Germany. Packages typically include walking tours of the Old Town, passing sites such St. George’s Abbey, and Pelikan House.

We’re total NOT ENJOYING the city tour at all. After the whole tour, We still didn’t know much about the city. Waking the old town less than 10 min. After the walking, What We know about this part of town is NOTHING! I ask myself Why I didn’t join the Hop On - Hop Off instead?

We had a day to use before flying to Hong Kong and this tour gave us an opportunity to see all sectors of the city. The afternoon visit to the Rhine Falls and Stein am Rhein was both interesting and lovely to see. Our tour guide was excellent and very informative.
