We took a boat ride near Rheinfall and it was a great experience. Do take an extra change of clothes/ wind cheater if you want to climb up to the flag post.

A recommended place to bring visitors to Rheinfall. Be prepared however if coming during winter/ early spring as the chill from the wind may be intolerable if not properly bundled up. In summer, usually we include the boat rides for our guests. As it involves walking up and down steps, ladies in stilettos are just looking for trouble, well, unless... More

Rheinfall is the biggest cataract in Europe. You have to buy your ticket 5CHF at the shop right next to the parking space. There is an elevator for the first bit, in case you bring a stroller or a wheelchair. It will bring you only to the first platform. Only by foot yo can go further down the stairs until... More

There are two place to see the Rheilfall, the best view you get from the side of Neuhausen; you see it just in front. At the other side with the platform it's more passing by. Its great to see the Rhein in its beginning, especcially as being Dutch and knowing how and where it ends.

We visited Rheinfall on August 01. This is national holiday in Switzerland and for this reason there is a fireworks on the Rheinfall every year. I visited Rheinfall the first time and I have never seen a waterfall as big as Rheinfall before. It is very impressive to see and hear it. There are plenty of spots to see the... More

As we live in the Schaffhausen area it is a must to make a tour to the Rhinefalls each time we have friends from other countries at home. You can visit the Rhinefalls at any season it is always impressing and spectacular.

We visited Rheinfall in December as part of a coach tour from Zurich. Just watching the volume of water pass though the falls is incredible. We were lucky enough to have a boat ride out to the falls and we were able to get really close ( and wet ) to have even a more spectacular view. Well worth a... More

Rheinfall is easily accessible from Zurich HB. The train ride is less than 40 mins and it brings you to the doorstep of Rheinfall. The admission tickets is just CHF$5 and you can walk to almost very close to the waterfall. Enjoy the strong water splashing onto you. Enjoy the sound of it. A slight pity that there is no... More

I went in November 2014, getting there by train from Zurich's main railway station. Well worth seeing. I paid a small charge to enter the 'restricted area' and this allowed me to get extremely close to the Falls, thus experiencing the sheer power and speed of them. However, that aside, you can gain excellent views of the Falls by walking... More
