Stein am Rhein Old City

Reviewed By Avidhiker - Newtown, Connecticut

Take a boat ride here for the pictures and a meal, then leave. It is a pretty, small old town with some very interesting architecture but sadly that is where it ends. It is primarily filled with cheap souvenir shops. You find next to nothing made in Switzerland.

Museum Kloster Sankt Georgen

Reviewed By KV1234 - London

The giant press by the entrance, the painted murals on the walls, the interesting floor tiles and the views of the river make this 5 Euros well spent.
The curators are very friendly and made us smile with their enthusiasm. Take a slow wander around and transport yourself back to the 13th to 15th century.

Museum Lindwurm

Das Museum fur Wohnen und Arbeiten um 1850 ladt zu einer Zeitreise ein! Entdecken Sie auf uber 1500 m2 die Welt von damals! Die Museumsraume sind so eingerichtet, als hatten die Bewohner nur kurz das Haus verlassen. Im Biedermeier-Salon erklingt Klaviermusik und im malerischen Innenhof gackern die Huhner. Kinder konnen sich im Spielzimmer verkleiden und auf Strohsacken Probe liegen.

The museum is located through the town gate and a few houses down on the left. A lot of people were milling around the entrance but I was surprised to find we were virtually the only visitors inside. Purchased a combination ticket for 7f which also gave entrance to Saint George's Abbey alongside the river next to the road bridge.
The museum is surprisingly large and spread over a couple of floors plus attic and the same on the other side of the internal courtyard. The majority of exhibits/rooms/layouts date from the 19th century and as well as demonstrating how the middle class lived, it also well demonstrates how hard servants worked and the conditions they lived and worked in. Although the main information panels are in German, there are English and other language card tablets which give a synopsis as you wander round. 5 or so chickens wander round the courtyard and there's a temporary room exhibition on outdoor beach bathing.
I found the layout rather confusing but guess that's part of the experience!

I first visited this boutique 6 months ago and noticed a nice bag but I didn't purchase it at that time. At the end of this first visit, the owner of the shop (a blonde lady), didn't hide her disappointment and made me feel not welcome.
Despite of this first experience and because I really liked that bag, I decided to return today in order to purchase it.
As soon as we entered the shop, we could feel that she was observing us and we could not look at the items quietly and take our time. She then came to us and told us that she recognized us and that she remembers that we stayed very long in her shop already the last time (and thinking not buying anything).
I'm originally from Stein am Rhein and I'm choked to see such a person giving a bad image of my home town to visiting tourists.
For me she's unprofessional and definitely not a good sales and warm person.
I definitely don't recommend this shop and for sure I will never come again.

Krippenwelt

Reviewed By Christian E - Wil

I cannot follow the negative comment and rating of the previous voter. Yes, you can buy some items for Christmas, but you don't have to. We have visited the museum twice and discovered managers the 2nd time, we oversaw before because there are so many on the two floors. You easily can spend two hours to explore the numerous managers from all over the world, from different era and material. The 2nd time we booked a very competent tour guide for 50 CHF for our group of 11 people. 11 people is quite big in the rather narrow corridors. The manager museum is located in the oldest house in the center of the picturesque city. Parking space is available in 500m walking distance. Don't forget to take your Raiffeisen debit card with you to get a discount.

Tourismus Stein am Rhein

Reviewed By nnmercman - Camberley, United Kingdom

Didn't realise there was a tourist information office in the town until I had a closer look at one of the town layout maps and noticed an "i". Sure enough it's tucked down a side street off Rathausplaz to the left of the Town Hall - even then it's not obvious and just looks like another building. Inside there's a couple of steps up to the counter/information area and I suspect the the odd layout and location compounds to make it a seldom visited office - it should really be located in one of the car parks outside the town gate.

Strandbad Niderfeld

Reviewed By terryEdinburgh - Dunbar, United Kingdom

Stein am Rhein is just gorgeous, one of the most picture-perfect little places I've ever visited.
This 'strandbad' is a little garden with a bit of the Rhine fenced off for you to swim in - as simple as that. What made it great fun is that the owner had lots of old surfboards to use and a rowing boat. It was only about £5-6 for all of us to stay there the whole day. There was a decent little café, changing rooms and sun-lounging areas.
A really simple day but sometimes they're the best.
