Top Things to do in Stein am Rhein

Top Things to do in Stein am Rhein: Rathausplatz, Burg Hohenklingen, Klostermuseum St Georgen, Kafi and Me, La P’tite Crêperie.


Regularly hailed as Switzerland’s most delightful town square (no mean accomplishment!), the stretched Rathausplatz frequently evokes little wheezes of pondering in light of the fact that it’s so darned fancy. The fresco-trimmed Rathaus (town corridor) takes off over the sixteenth-century houses named after their detailed paintings, for example, Sonne (Sun) and Der Weisse Adler (The White Eagle). Look into a level and you’ll see that numerous likewise sport complicatedly cut oriel windows and surging blossom boxes. It’s unadulterated fable stuff.

Burg Hohenklingen

For a touch of a medieval environment, you can’t beat this twelfth-century ridge fortification with splitting perspectives over the housetops of Stein am Rhein. Tuck into Swiss works of art, for example, hamburger braised in Pinot noir or nearby trout cooked in Riesling in the Rittersaal (Hall of Knights). It’s a 30-minute tough stroll from the Old Town.

Klostermuseum St Georgen

This cloister exhibition hall sits between the Rathaus and the Rhine. A Benedictine religious community was worked here in 1007, yet what you see today, including the house and the superb Festsaal (great lounge area), is to a great extent a late-Gothic creation.

Kafi and Me

With its hodgepodge of furniture, eye-getting knickknacks, and well-disposed administration, this vintage-cool bistro is one of Stein am Rhein’s ideal. Nip in for incredible espresso, forte teas, custom-made cakes and light nibbles from quiche to servings of mixed greens and toasties.

La P’tite Crêperie

Devour marvelously light crêpes with cheddar and Bündnerfleisch (air-dried hamburger), maple syrup or – what could be more Swiss? – Toblerone at this opening in-the-divider put with a boho feel. It’s shut Tuesday and Wednesday in low season.
