There's more to life

Exceptional quality of life, properties to make your dream home come true, great places to work: Schaffhausen has something for everyone – and above all, the ingredients for an exciting future!


You will find towns and villages full of charm and with excellent shops,
unspoilt landscapes to discover and relax in, and the River Rhine, which
changes with the seasons but remains fascinating all year round – those are some of the ingredients which create exceptional quality of life in the canton. And life here is never dull, with a great mix of cultural events and wide range of sports on offer.


You can make your dream home come true in Schaffhausen. The area offers a range of property types, all attractive and affordable, to accommodate every taste: whether you’re looking for a loft in the old-town quarter or a house in the country – here, there’s a dream home for everyone. What’s more, the canton is attractive due to the low cost of living. In Schaffhausen you will spend less than the Swiss average on property, tax and insurance and much less than in the major cities such as Zurich, Geneva and Basel.

If you have children, they will grow up in a great and safe environment: all
types of school from kindergarten to university are close at hand. And the
International School of Schaffhausen (ISSH) provides teaching in English
up to and including the IB Diploma (International Baccalaureate).
