Travel Tips for Stein am Rhein
Since Stein Am Rhein is within the Rhein river.....you can also visit this place with a boat from the nearby place within the Bodensee or rather called "Lake Constance". I believe you can also cross the river going to some german village, there is a regular boat ride to CONSTANCE of Germany and back to Stein Am Rhein.
The Untertor or the Zeitturm
The Untertor also known as the Zeitturm (clock tower) was built in 1367.
Quick Fact : The Untertor was the only notable destruction of WWII when on the 22 February 1945 an American pilot mistook Stein am Rhein for a German town and bombarded it. The Untertor was destroyed, but was rebuilt in 1948 with the original stones.
2 Visits to Stein am Rhein
2002 - I was in nearby Zürich on business, and a colleague took me here in his Porsche to visit. We had supper with his girlfriend up in Hohenklingen Castle (see tip).
2003 - Stein am Rhein was one stop in a weekend trip going right around Bodensee (Lake Constance). Click the Europe page for details. I arrived by train from Konstanz (Constance), Germany.
My same friend met me again at the station. His girlfriend had found a really unique hotel for me (see tip), so they took me there to check in. Then they took me for dinner at a campground on the banks of the River Rhein.
The next day I took the train to Schaffhausen.
