Singen

Singen

Singen – at the foot of the Hohentwiel, 15 kilometers from Schaffhausen and quite close to Lake Constance. The city has approximately 45,000 inhabitants and is known for the ruins of an impressive fortification complex.

Due to the effects of the war, Singen is characterized by post-war reconstruction. Thanks to the State Garden Show, which was held here several years ago, the city has beautiful parks and gardens along the banks of the Aach River. The city has a lively cultural life and has a rich offering of leisure time activities.

Sights worth seeing include the Hegau Museum with paintings by Otto Dix as well as many special exhibitions, and the adjacent volcano landscape of the Hegau.

The city is a traditional GF Automotive location. The factory here employs around 1,100 people and has a production capacity of 200,000 tonnes annually. It is one of the largest within GF Automotive.
