This is a spectacular scenic place, the great Rheinfall in Switzerland. We enjoyed this scenic and spectacular place and leisure cruise towards the waterfall.

Spent the morning here before afternoon flight out of Zurich. Admission Fr5 with free parking and clean toilet. Lift down from S side poorly signposted but fine on more important way up. One if Europe's great natural spectacles almost on a par with the bigger Niagara and more impressive than Gullfoss in Iceland for its sheer power.

We walked the "trail" from our Parking Lot 3 which put us right on the edge of the Rhine River! Going back to the car, we took the blacktopped path, however. The views from along the river were lovely and gave us time to decide what we wanted to do. We chose to ride the "yellow" boat up to the... More

We visited the fall through Schloss Lauten and it was a lovely little trip. With the elevater it was no problem to get to the waterfall, which you can see very well. If you can walk it's nice to walk down the stairs and see the fall from closer by even.

Although its size and magnitude may not be the biggest or largest waterfall in the world, it is somehow one of the biggest and nicest one in Europe. Visitors to Switzerland must dropby for a visit and you will be amazed by its beauty and power! There are some cottage-hut themed of shop houses here selling as information kiosk or... More

Biggest waterfall in Europe just inside the Switzerland border. You can take a boat ride right up to the waterfall and if you want to you can even climb the steps in the centre of the waterfalls to look down from the top. Several different rides to choose from, so make sure you get the one to suit you, but... More

Visited with my girlfriend in July 2014 for a day trip. Got the train from Zurich which was very simple. Had an amazing day at the falls. Beautiful scenery and relatively cheap to get on the boats or maybe even just walk around the falls. If you have some time, head over to the town of Schaffhausen by train. Amazing... More

My husband and I live in Germany. We have had so many visitors looking for good day trips from our area and who want to check another Country off their list. We found the visit to Rhine Falls to be easy and wonderful. I loved it because it was easy to drive to, directions are very clear, and there was... More
