Konstanz to Stein am Rhein

by wompbomp

We will be visiting the Bodensee in May and would like to visit Stein am Rhein. We had considered traveling by boat, but may not have enough time to make the round trip that way. What is the approximate fare by train from Konstanz? Thank you.

See www.sbb.ch (English version: www.rail.ch) for schedules and fares. Finding fares is a bit difficult, granted.

Trains run about twice an hour, take about 40 minutes. You need to change in Kreuzlingen, only 3 minutes after leaving Konstanz by train.

One way single fare is 9 Swiss Francs (7 Euro), day ticket is 18 Swiss Francs (14 Euro).

You can't see the river from the photo but If you have been to this place..you will surely know about this area.

The bench in the photo is facing the Rhein river ( Germany's most popular and major river ) and opposite the side is Switzerland, Stein Am Rhein....many hotels and retaurants around the area.

Sissi Stein in Stein am Rhein

by Kakapo2

Wherever I might go... But this is almost certainly the most suitable place for me on the planet: Stein am Rhein. My last name is Stein - with the English addition Abel - and the title photo shows me in Stein am Rhein. And really: This magnificent town in Switzerland added to my beauty ;-)

On a visit to Germany I met up with friends from Bremen at Lake Constance (Bodensee), and they said they had a surprise plan for me. We took the ferry from Meersburg to Konstanz, and then we drove westward along the lake, and finally ended up in Stein am Rhein. Sissi Stein in Stein am Rhein.

Even better: I had never been there before although I know the Bodensee region rather well, and was stunned by this incredibly picturesque medieval place. In the town centre fresco-style art works decorate the facades of the buildings. Breathtakingly beautiful.

There are also gates and towers to admire, and a castle - Burg Hohenklingen - on top of a hill named Klingen sits high above the town.


We carried on to the Rhine Falls near Schaffhausen which were also a fantastic experience. You can go on a boat tour to the falls and climb a rock that divides the falls into two arms. And on the right side is a castle, towering over the thundering waters.

Tips and more pictures whenever I find time... ;-)

Stein am Rhein and it's frescoes

by amsterdam_vallon

"Window on the Middle Ages"

The Romans gave early affirmation of the strategic and commercial value of the location by building a settlement on the left bank of the Rhein. One day this place would be called Stein am Rhein, which literally, means "stone on the Rhein." Its fortunes have always been inexorably linked with location - where the Rhein courses from Lake of Constance (the Bodensee) toward the Rheinfall, about twelve miles downstream at Schaffhausen.

"The Frescoes"

After taking the bridge over the Rhein, you will entering the old town. Around the Rathausplatz, you can see some 7-8 1500's historic buildings with painted facades.

These paintings, some biblical or historical in nature depict tales of wine, vineyards, crafts, festivals and a full range of human conditions. Themes vary from history or mythology, commerce or warfare to morality. Originally, the wealthy residents of these decidedly upscale dwellings had these frescoes applied as highly visible testimony to their affluence.
