Bus route from Schaffhausen to Titisee and back

by Tapabrata

Hi
I am planning to be in Schaffhausen for a day and continue to go to Titisee and come back. Can you suggest whether there is a bus route to Titisee ?

Regards/ Tapa

There is no bus route from Schaffhausen to Titisee. You can make this trip by train though. See www.bahn.de for more information. Train takes about 2 hours.

Thanks for your reply

For the fastest trip you have to change trains three times - which almost certainly guarantees that you will miss one. Be prepared that it will take you 2:30 or 2:45 hours one way (with only two changes).

Cut the DB some slack... I've done trips through Germany involving that many changes and have only once missed one. Mostly connecting trains will wait a few minutes for a delayed train.

I have lived in Germany most my life and am still visiting, and I have missed several connections. The problem is, the more changes you have and every time the train waits for another late train, this adds up with the number of changes. In the end a local train will not wait 20 minutes for a late train.

Regional and local trains do surely wait for late ICE or IC trains but not too long for other regional trains if it is not the last one of the day.

I once tried to get from a place between Stuttgart and Ulm to a place east of Nürnberg via Aalen which only involved regional trains. I arrived two hours late. I have never done this again, now only via Augsburg, Donauwörth or Stuttgart. I always try to have gaps of 15 to 20 minutes between the trains if my trip does not start with an ICE or IC.

Travel Tips for Schaffhausen

Historical buildings

by yumyum

Wandering around the old town and look for obvious and hidden treasures. It can easily be done in a day trip from Zürich combined with the Rhine Fall to which you can either walk along the Rhine or take bus no. 1 or 6. I like the Munot castle a lot which houses some old weapons and in summer there are sometimes concerts or openair cinema on the open space on the top. Behinde the Munot there are some deer living in a pit.

catch a glimpse of the thundering Rhine Falls. As I was mentioning earlier, the falls are indeed a spectacular sight: Did you know that even when the river is in (only) medium flow yet around 700 cubic meters of water tumble some 75 feet over the rocks every second, forming a curtain of foam 150 meters wide?? Impressed? Yeah, me too.... as I just realized this fact (when I referred to my brochure).

For all visitors that are going back to Germany and have some CHF to spend I would recommend a huge shopping mall in Schaffhausen/Herblingen. There is a COOP supermarket and a M supermarket and several other shops to spend your last Rappen!
Herblingen has got a Autobahn exit I guess!

The old town

by sandysmith

The old town, a delightful pedestrian zone, is probably Switzerland's most magnificent town. Houses of the 16th -18th century are embellished with statues, reliefs allegorical frescoes and richly carved oriels.

In 1570 Tobias Stimmer painted Haus zum Ritter (the Knight's house) inVordergasse with scenes from mythology and Roman history.

Rhine Falls

by Kid-A

The falls are impressive -- not Niagara Falls impressive -- but very good all the same!

The information sign at the tourist center says the following:

-The falls are about 14,000 to 17,000 years old.
-They are 150 m (450 ft) wide and 23 m (75 ft) high.
-In the winter months, the average water flow is 250 m³/s, while in the summer, the average water flow is 600 m³/s.

And since this is a tip, here's a tip for you: you can save your 1 Swiss Franc, which is the entrance cost to walk down to the falls, by walking down to the train station. Basically, there are 2 paths going down to the viewing area, and the train path continues down beyond the train platform to the tourist area -- so you get down there free of charge. You can walk back up the other path and back through the souvenier shop with the other tourists if you'd like (free of charge).
