While visiting Felix Mendelssohn's home in Leipzig, I saw a color sketch done by the composer and was surprised by the sheer beauty of the picture. I was also very curious about this place since I've never heard of this beautiful and huge waterfalls, and yet Mendelssohn visited there in the 19th century already. At that time, it inspired me...

We had a lovely day, a warm day in November and it was the perfect plan to visit the Rheinfall! We left from Radolfzell till Schaffhausen, and waiting for S33 . we arrived on the north side and walk and visit and admire the whole landscape. The sun, the colors of autumn and the water made our day perfect !

This was the first attraction we visited in Zurich, From the first look it looks like a small falls but when to go near the fall by a boat we realized how huge it is.

It was AMAZING. I fell in love with the Rhine Falls when i first set sight on it. When i went to the lowest viewing point, it looked as though i was about to be swept away by the river and my knees were shaking. You definitely must see the magnificent view and the entry fee is only 5 francs,... More

We visited the falls on a very hot day. It was busy there but not so bad that you could not enjoy it. This natural falls on the Rhine took all our breaths away and I could have stayed all day just watching the water and how powerful it was. So amazing to be able to get so close to... More

We drove to Rheinfall on our first day in Zurich. It took us less than 2 hours, and the journey was absolutely worth it. The falls are stunning..But more than that, what I liked about this place was that you can get amazing views of the falls without getting into any boat. There are several viewing points where you actually... More

The biggest waterfall of Europe - it talks for itself, it a is a must see on the list if you visit eastern Switzerland. We did not do the boat visit part, that must even more round up the experience to an overall 5+, if there was such a category :-)

Had an awesome time. A sunny day would be good to have. Don't miss the boat trip for 7 euros which takes you to a rock where you get to feel n see the falls the best.... Don't expect an veggie food near by. Max you would get is just French fries for about 5 euros..
