Discover the place where the mighty Rhine river leaves lake Constance, and where the bewitching town of Stein am Rhein exists, literally like a little pebble at its shores. Its fantastic lakefront view, picture-perfect heritage buildings lovingly decorated in colorful frescos, and perfectly preserved medieval old town make it irreplaceable.

What started as little less than a fishing village around 1000 years ago, its strategic position made it fundamental for the control of all major trade routes of the Middle Ages, ensuring the prosperity of the city until today.

Discover the city hall’s red facade, tiled gabled roof and ornate oriel windows. Marvel at the delicate maze of cobblestone alleys and the medieval murals carefully preserved in most houses. Learn more about the origins of this town and how Emperor Henry II contributed to its growth over a millennia ago.
