A Swiss town sitting on the upper Rhine River, Schaffhausen is a wine growing area surrounded on 3 sides by the German border. It is the capital of the canton of the same name and has about 36,000 souls living within its borders. Schaffhausen is but one of 4 Swiss towns located on the northern side of the Rhine with the others being Neuhausen am Rheinfall, Neunkirch and Stein am Rhein. Get your linguistic skills in order, as the chatter here is a local version of Alemannic Swiss German, if you wish to understand what is being said to you. The coworking premises here are created for comfort, as you will be in the town that has on average 122.5 days of rain or snow per year. Bring your umbrella if you will be in Schaffhausen during July as it is the wettest time.
You will have gorgeous Baroque buildings with decorated facades and cute bay windows to gawk at as you meander around this historical town, plus there is a High Gothic church of St Johann that is renowned for its acoustics, so you can try singing a hymn or 2 when you check it out. There is an old canton fortress, the Munot Schaffhausen at the railway junction of the Swiss and German rail networks. A former Benedictine monastery and a Romanesque cathedral just about completes the tour for the history or architectural buffs.
You will be pleased to know that it is legal to grow your own weed, if that is what you need to get the creative juices flowing and if you happen to be an animal lover and want to own a guinea pig as a pet, you must have 2. Apart from Switzerland's somewhat quirky laws, it is the country of tech savvy souls and home to global banks plus 15 Fortune 500 companies. No wonder coworking spaces have opened their doors in this area when the whole country's population has adopted technology to such a degree.
