I was impressed with the sheer size of this waterfall. It is not typical of European waterfalls. However, I saw it from regional train passing almost on top of it, which gave me a very nice possibility of higher altitude view and the possibility to snatch a photo. However, you have to stay tuned with your camera to snatch the... More

It is worth to see this amazing waterfalls: it is a magic atmosphere and I advise you to use the ferry to the little island in the middle of them to enjoy it properly!

Really well worth a visit, the largest waterfalls in Europe are a sight to behold. The scenery is magnificent, especially the railway line across the top

It's really wonderful waterfall with huge water force and when you go in boat near to it you will be almost drenched . There are two view point and don't miss from museum side where you can even see it and touch it from very near. From museum side we paid 10chf per person to go near 2 big rock... More

Yesterday I took a trip with some friends from my home in central Switzerland although the journey is possible from anywhere in Switzerland. We took the train to Konstanz in Germany and then the URH (Untersee und Rhein) boat to Schaffhausen before getting the train home. Konstanz is an historic city and the local centre of a large chunk of... More

Had the chance to visit this fantastic beauty spot at lunch time on a nice sunny day. It is really worth a visit if you are in the area. Plenty of nice walks and boat trips, if you wish to experience the power of the Rhine

The view of the Rhine Falls from the viewing platform was good but it's hard to get a decent photo with such a high volume of tourists. Definitely the best part was to jump on a boat for about €8 each, float down the river and check out the huge catfish below, and then enjoy the ride right upto the... More

Even though I'm somewhat of a local, I still can't get enough of the ride from Schaffhausen (or Stein Am Rhein) to Kreuzlingen. On a sunny day, this ride - with the warmth on your face (wear sunscreen, of course!) and the wind in your hair (attach wigs and toupees securely, please), you will feel invigorated and alive.

Always great to be on the ships on the Rhine,weather as a local, or to take visitors for a cruise! Sit back, have a wine or beer, something to eat from snacks to meals, and enjoy the scenery. Highly recommended, be it for a few hours or a whole day!
