We went there on Aug 16 when that was the rare sunny day during the month. The waterfall was roaring loud. Taking the boat trip to the middle of tall rock in the middle of the waterfall is highly recommended. We experienced hailstone fall when we climbed up to the top. With the sunny weather and the humidity, we saw... More

Beautiful place to visit, waterfalls were just gushing. We were there last year when the water levels were very high in the Rhine River and there was no boat access to the rock in the center of the waterfalls since the water was so crazy, that was disappointing as we would have liked to climb to the top to the...

Wonderfull place to be . However you have to be very cautious for pickpockets.I have been all over the world,even the places famous for pickpockets , but this is the first time that I became a victim of a merciless pickpocket who stole my wallet on the last day of our family vacation in Switzerland.Since I lost all my credit...

Super place to visit. Good for all the daily and cheap at just 5CHF for an adult. Three things to make the most of it: Parking: there are three regular areas and one extra space, one as you come off the motorway, one main one by the entrance and a third a ways off. Just passed the main one on... More

I was surprised by the scale of these waterfalls - well worth visiting and doing the boat trips to see up close. The kids loved it. A good restaurant at the castle. Combi-ticket worth doing that includes boat to castle, boat to rock in the centre of the river and access to the viewing gallery right in the path of... More

This has been on my list of things to do for a few years now. Finally when we were passing by on the autobahn in switzerland I insisted we stop, but i knew it had to be a quick stop since it was 8 pm and folks in my car were antsy to get home. First off, it is RIGHT... More

I have been coming to the Rheinfall every since I was a small child. I have family living close by. I have always enjoyed my trips to the falls. It's true that there isn't much in that area, BUT, there are some good restaurants and there's even a walking trail along the falls for those who want it. For the... More

These falls are supposed to be one of the biggest falls in Europe. However if you go into the Swiss mountains you'll see many more spectacular falls that you can see along with unbelievable mountain sites and other gems. If you are visiting Schaffhausen then the Falls are a must but if your time in Switzerland is limited, go elsewhere

This is well worth the visit, the force of the water is stunning. We went on platform and on the boat trip. If we were doing it again I'd head straight for boat and save money as this is the most impressive thing.

Considering this is the biggest in Europe (the highest in Europe being in Triberg in the Black Forest where an entrance fee is charged!), it is worth seeing. However, the town of Schaffhausen is pretty stark. We were glad we took the little train from the car park - a special treat for our grandson - as it got us... More
