The Vienna House zur Bleiche Schaffhausen is on the edge of the city's Old Town right next to the railway station. Described as "one of Switzerland's most charming" places by Michelin, Schaffhausen is known for its Renaissance style and brightly painted facades. However, this hotel is a modern addition -- expect contemporary décor, free Wi-Fi throughout and bright public spaces.
It's a 10-minute walk to the Rhine River and the Munot Fortress, which dates back to the 16th century and has been protected by guards since 1377. The Rhine Falls, Europe's most powerful, are less than two miles away. Further afield, Lake Constance, Zurich and Basel are all easily accessible by train.
The hotel's bright restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, offering regional cuisine often with a Mediterranean twist. There's also a bar, while the hotel offers cheese fondue and mulled wine during the winter.
The rooms are large and feature air conditioning and soundproofing, as well as seating areas and safes as standard. Superior Rooms are on the higher floors and have better views, and there are also suites available.
