Dachsen, Switzerland, is located in the north of the country in the canton of Zürich, close to the German border. Around two thousand people live in Dachsen, which is around forty minutes away from the city of Zürich. The official language is German. The village is situated in the so called “green lung” of the canton. The region has a particularly rural charm and scenic vineyards, which stretch all the way to Germany; therefore, it is a popular destination with city dwellers from Zürich, who want to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of a big city for the weekend.

Apart from the beautiful nature, tourists can visit well-known sights such as the nearby Rheinfall, (in English, "Rhine Falls"). It is an impressive waterfall, which is among the three biggest in Europe. The enchanting Laufen Castle is situated nearby, overlooking the waterfall. It is certified as a Swiss Heritage Site of National Significance.

The climate is moderate and continental. In summer, the maximum mean temperatures range from twenty-one to twenty-four degrees Celsius. During the winter, the daily maximum temperatures can drop to zero degrees Celsius.

Tourists who enjoy historic architecture should check out Andelfingen, which is ten minutes’ drive from Dachsen. It is the regional centre of Zurich's wine country, with historic buildings and a lovely castle. The castle garden is famous throughout Switzerland. The villages of the Stammer Valley are renowned for the scenic, timber-framed buildings. They are the oldest and most beautiful of their kind in Switzerland. If you want to get really close to the Rhine Falls on the water, you can book a boat tour, which gives you the opportunity to see the impressive waterfalls from a completely different and dramatic view.
