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. If you... More

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!

We preferred the boat trip going downwards the Rhein (saving an hour). We took the Train S8 to Kreuzlingen and returned on the boat to Schaffhausen. The view is beautiful with landscapes, small houses and people enjoying the sun on the banks. The see the cities of Konstanz and Stein am Rhein from the river is amazing.

As I live nearby an excursion on the Rhine is one of my fav. Taking the boat trip from Schaffhausen to the beautiful city of Stein am Rhein is a very relaxing way to enjoy the river. I you want to be a bit more active take the same boat trip but get off in Diessenhofen with its spectacular old... More

We really loved the way you can approach the falls by boat, as well as the trip from one side to the other. Excellent staff too!

Quite spectacular waterfalls! They are great to see especially with the stunning Schaffhausen City in the background. Awesome photographs especially if it's a nice day! . There are four different boat options all with different pricing between €7 &€14 to various viewing points to the falls. We took option one to climb up in the middle of the falls. They... More

The boat trip starts from Schifflände and ends at Kreuzlingen (which takes 4 hours). As we were short of time, we took the trip till the next village Dissenhofen. It was an hour journey and we enjoyed this trip on a sunny day. The view is beautiful with landscapes, small houses and people enjoying the sun on the banks. We... More
