Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We went early on a Sunday morning and nearly had the whole old town for ourselves. Such a beautifully preserved medieval town. We took a map from the tourism center and followed the map around. We were able to see all the prominent buildings and their oriels using the map.

There is always something going on in this lovely, well preserved town. The last four days were filled with music from Jazz to Classical, Flamenco and Irish.

Tour Around The Old Street. Love the sculptures and buildings atmosphere. It’s in the border of Germany. Rest and relax in a cafe for a coffee break and snacks. A quiet and cozy small town to visit.

We came to Schaffhausen in May22 to see the Rhinefalls & to visit this beautiful 16th century medieval town. Schaffhausen is best known for its geographical location as it is overlooking the Rhine River and has its 3 sides surrounded by Germany.
When we arrived, we were totally amazed by its quietness and peacefulness, plus the beautiful paintings on the facades & the extended window bays at many of the beautiful houses in this old town. There are many attractions in Schaffhausen, such as the old town, the Cathedral, the Fortress, and the Rhine Falls.
Please pay a visit to Schaffhausen when you visited Zurich. You only need to spare a day or half to visit this beautiful old town. (The train ride only takes 40 mins from Zurich Station)
