Stein Am Rhein - Medieval Switzerland
This was a beautiful little town. Very ornate designs on each of the building, very picturesque. Very fairytale like. This village was founded on or around 400 A.D. The buildings have paintings on them that depict a variety of human conditions, history, morality etc. The care and detail is most impressive.

"The picturestique Swiss town"
Stein Am Rhein is a small 16'th century..medieval village situated along the Rhein River in Switzerland. The town is well worth a visit to witness the beautiful " Frescoes " in the row houses ( photo shown above is from the main square ), the very swiss style of houses and livings.... the Main Square of this town is said to be the prettiest in Switzerland and that is why this is very touristy.
"Sunset at night!"
I was here on 8 in the evening, it was still clear....we walked through this small town and had some drinks until sunset, I took the sunset photo from the hotel restaurant terrace..where we had our drinks,..my Sangria! It was a beautiful place, at the opposite side of the river is Germany which this place is very close to the German border...... can you imagine sitting behind the lake from a hotel resto and both sides are Swiss houses styles with theme frescoes?...I just went a bit closer to have this better picture...Afterwards, we headed the carpark and leave Stien Am Rhein for the day.
"My visit to Stein Am Rhein"
Actually, I went to switzerland without knowing any idea about this place...Thanks to Nicole! VT Nike333 for suggesting this place a visit, this is another discovery and I'm glad I've been here for a while...Also, to family MARTI, a family friend from Weinfelden, Switzerland who bring us here and be our private guide in town.
There was not much tourist when we arrive at 8 p.m, but I notice many restaurants are mostly full...For a few hours in the city is actually a very short one to see and discover everything.
