  • If you walk you have to consider a large number of steps, otherwise there is a road for cars at the back. The visit to the castle is free and worth as from above one can enjoy a beautiful view over the city. Truly recommended.

  • Did you know that Albrecht Dürer was planning ideal fortresses? So they climb the fortress after Dürer's plans. Impressive defence course (nice to climb from the street "Understadt" in the old Battlement). Impressive Hall sog casemate, helical stairway to the Pinnacle where you can enjoy magnificent views of the old town: the traditional Munitbälle are held here in summer.

  • "Munot" Fortress over the Small Town Schaffhausen. A famous swiss song is called "s'Munot-Glöggli" (Munot-Bell) which is about the bell on the roof of the tower (which is still in function) Go up and enjoy the old fortress which was build in the years 1563–1585 and serves as the city's symbol. In 1805 almost the City Schaffhausen has wanted to destroy the fortress but thanks Johann Jakob Beck they've changed the mind and got restored till 1839. the Munot is open daily (Entry: Free) where you get a beautiful view down to the rhine and city Schaffhausen. Several events are held during the year (Open-Air Kino, Concerts, Ball - dance party) Tip: From the other side of the rhine /or on the bridge (to Feuerthalen) you get a beautiful view up to the Munot and which's giving you a perfect foto sujet.
  • Perfect getaway for children. An old fort where you can feel like a knight. Discovering the fort and enjoying the view over Schaffhausen: It's all there.
  • Like in a fairy tail. Fantastic place, great views.
  • Great view over the city. It's for free and only takes 15 minutes to climb.
  • Medival castle with great panorama of Schaffhausen and Rhine river. ( Warning , you need to climb a lot of stairs to get there.)
