For a day trip from the bustle and activity of Zürich, you can’t do much better than visit Stein am Rhein. One of the prettiest villages in a country famed for pretty villages, this little gem – which only has around 300 inhabitants – is probably the best-preserved mediaeval village in Europe. What was originally a tiny fishing village developed into a prosperous trading center in the 11th century, when the Benedictine Abbey of St. George was relocated to the village owing to its strategic position (roads and river intersecting at this point).

Particularly famous for its beautifully frescoed house fronts and its “Rathausplatz” (the square of the old Town Hall), Stein am Rhein lies in the Schaffhausen canton in northern Switzerland, close to the German border. It is around 55 km northeast of Zurich (45 minutes by car, 1 ½ hours by train).
