Stein am Rhein
Chlini Schanz (2)

This street starts at the edge of the Rhine and runs all the way around the medieval town to the Chirchhofplatz (church square) to the east. Its name apparently means "small bastion" and probably follows the line of an earthen wall which served as the first line of defence against enemy attacks.
