Once you get off at the Schaffhausen train station, you can easily walk to the base of the fort in 15 mins. Then steps all the way up. Great exercise. It's small but nice. Great views of the town. We stopped at the Rhinefalls first...More

This place is accessible both from the old town, lots of steps, or by car on the other side. Access is free. It offers you a great view of the city. It is very quite, you can even take your lunch and have a picnic.

Munot is actually accessible by vehicle - a nice little park stands astride it. The tower is impressive. To me, more impressive were the guys pushing all of the equipment for the little cafe at the top up the ramp. Assume that only happens once...More
