Discover the medieval old city of Schaffhausen and discover the impressive Munot fortress. Wander past old houses, through small romantic streets and experience the history of the city firsthand.
What to Expect
Discover Schaffhausen and the Munot fortress. The monumental building is already a significant part of the city of Schaffhausen. Built between 1564 and 1589, it is the only structure to feature circular construction, as Albrecht Dürer described it in his building plans.

Enjoy a view of the city, the Rhine and the greater vicinity from the battlements. The fortress watchman still lives in the tower with his family. Every evening at 21:00, the fortress bell chimes to signal the close of the city gates and public houses. From the fortress, take a scenic trip to the vineyards in the lower city, where the ships are moored.

On this walking tour, learn interesting facts about the fortress and discover other impressive sights of Schaffhausen, like the Kloster Allerheiligen (All Saints Abbey), the gorgeous "Haus zum Ritter," the guildhalls and the 171 magnificent oriels. Wander the old alleys and immerse yourself in the history of Schaffhausen.
