Schaffhausen – zeitgeist and inspiration

Schaffhausen is the capital city of the canton of Schaffhausen, home to around 80,000 inhabitants. It is situated at the heart of an independent and vibrant region nestled between Zurich and Baden-Württemberg (Germany). With its well-preserved historic old town and close proximity to the Rhine River, Schaffhausen is a real tourist magnet. The Munot fortress provides an unrivalled view of the river and bordering forestland. The Rhine Falls, Europe’s biggest waterfall, is a true spectacle of nature.

But it’s not just the idyllic natural landscape that makes Schaffhausen so special – the city is a hotspot for culture buffs. Why not pay a visit to the All Saints’ Abbey Museum, the Kultur- und Begegnungszentrum (culture and community centre), St. Johann city church or Schaffhausen municipal theatre?

As for industry, Schaffhausen has become highly regarded in the metals & engineering and chemicals sectors as well as for its watchmaking. Certainly, the recent restructuring of its political system may have had something to do with these changes. The city on the High Rhine is home to innovative companies and various international firms.
