Is there a location near the station to store ones luggage for the day..?? Understand that some train stations have luggage cabinets but cannot find any information on this station. Thanks Dave
Re: luggage storage
according to my personal experiences there are lockers even in the smallest stations in Switzerland.
Re: luggage storage
and enter the name of the station you want information about in the search box. The select the "equipment" tab. There you can see that there are 60 small lockers, wich cost 4,- per day, and 27 large lockers which cost 7,-. The site even gives the dimensions of the lockers :-)
There is also a manned luggage depot. Opening times for that you find on the same page under "services".
Travel Tips for Schaffhausen
walk around the Rheinfall!...
walk around the Rheinfall! Make the way to Schloss Laufen and downstairs to the falls! The views are magnificient and you are right in between the water...it´s scary! I always thought that the water would rise and.....ok it never happened, but it´s really a lot of water above yourself!!!
Decorated Window Coverings
One very unique local custom in Schaffhausen is the ornate window and archway designs and coverings in the downtown area. It appears many people took a long amount of time and some distinct effort in differentiating their doors from others. Although many of the street level shops have become more modern, the second floors have remained very traditional, including some with dates as early as the 1500s.
Definitely take the time to walk around the Stadtzentrum in downtown Schaffhausen.

>HOT TIP: Although we haven't personally done this ourselves but we were told that you could enjoy one of Europe's most popular river trips and visit the medieval town of Stein am Rhein, located not far away from Schaffhausen.
A nice thing to do in Schafhausen is joining a Night-watch tour. It starts at 21:00 when the bells of the Munot ring. It is a special city tour where two guys tell you the stories of the daily life in the 15th to the 19th century very lively. Just imagine: Back then in the town lived
10 000 pigs, people emptied their night pots out of the windows....what a smell!! The tour is about 1 to 1,5 hour long depending on who you might meet :-)... it is Fr. 12.- a person, Kids Fr. 10.-. Check for dates on the homepage. Down side: it is in Swiss German.
Meeting point: Tourist Information Center.
Rheinfall (Rhine Falls)
Although these are the largest waterfalls in Europe, they are no Niagara. It's still a very pleasant setting with good photo opportunities and it's a nice walk there or back from Schaffhausen.
The contact details below are for the tourist office: Touristservice, Neuhausen am Rheinfall. The directions are to the Falls themselves.
