The Rhine Falls, the biggest Falls in Europe, offer the visitor a spectacular sight!17,000 years ago this impressive wonder of nature was formed and is now the main attraction for countless visitors from all over the world.Over a width of 150 metres and a height of 23 metres, an average of 700,000 litres of water cascade over the rocks every second. A boat ride to the famous rock in the middle of the Falls and the short walk to the top, is an unforgettable experience for every visitor.

Worth Seeing

We stayed at Heidi's B&B just a short walk from Rheinfall. A major rush of water that many people were floating down the river on a hot day. Worth seeing.

We stopped by to see the falls just prior to boarding a river cruise. Taking the tour boat up close to the falls were very nice. I think the best way to experience the falls must be to take the boat which docks at the rocks in the middle of the falls. Taking the steps up to the observation deck... More

A must visit place. Whole thing is one epic journey. You can get a boat and be transferred to a very small island in the middle of the waterfall. Island got a view point. Great photo opportunity. Boats travel every few minutes. There is a pay and display parking nearby. Highly recommended place.

This is one of the most magnificent waterfalls I have seen. Visited this place with my wife. We took booked our seats on a bus as part of the "Best of Switzerland" tour. The reception at Hotel Radisson Blu, Zurich Airport helped us with the booking (CHF 49 per person). The detailed brochure available at the hotel about various tourist... More

The falls by themselves are spectacular but we also took the boat ride to the rock which is in the middle of the falls for some close up views. The lookouts around Schloss Lauber are also excellent getting you within a metre or two of the falls. Very spectacular

The whole place is more than beautiful, the river is so powerful while falling down, like a mini-Niagara in Switzerland. Try one of the ship tours on the river - they offer several - that take you directly to the waterfall, or the rock in the middle of the fall, etc. The view and the experience is fantastic! It is...

My wife and I visited here in early July. The falls are the most powerful in Europe, not the tallest. They are 492 feet wide, and drop 82 feet in 3 stages. There are 2 craggy rocks that split the falls in two. The noise, once up close, is quite loud. There's a visitor center which has bathrooms and a... More

Our travel agent suggested that we visit Rheinfalls while holidaying in Switzerland. What a magnificent natural feature. Cater very well for tourists with boat rides.Well worth a visit. There is a fee to park your car and for the boat ride. Looking at the view is free.
