Again I am drawn to write a tip on the town houses of Schaffhausen, as to lump all the details of these fantastic houses into one tip would be an injustice to the different aspects of the buildings.
Another beautiful feature of these town houses are the dorways. Many of the doorways of the town houses are beautiful carved portals through which you enter. The doorways are highly ornate and some are painted and gilded.
The strange thing abpout these doors and buildings in general is that they are everyday shops and stores! In Ireland these buildings would be museums but here they are so plentiful that they are part of everyday life. The door shown in my first picture is the entrance to a shoe shop, the second is a sports store and the third is a bank!!!
