Abbey Church of Schaffhausen

The abbey church of Schaffhausen, a three-aisled basilica, is a Romanesque church.

The abbey church was part of the buildings of the Benedictine abbey of All Saints (Aller Heiligen), founded by the Swabian count Eberhard III of Nellenburg (1015-1078).

The monastery was completed in 1064.  The reconstruction in the 12th century was based on the reform movement of Hirsau.

The abbey was dissolved and transformed into a parish church in 1524.
