Marvel at the Rhine Falls, Europe's biggest waterfall, on this half-day tour from Zurich. Travel to Northern Switzerland, a beautiful wine growing region with charming farming villages and scenic landscape near the German border. Admire the medieval Laufen Castle before reaching majestic Rhine Falls. Enjoy a full hour to admire and capture photos of the powerful falls, and in summer, take a thrilling boat ride to get a closer look at them (optional, June to August only). Central Zurich or airport pickup make this scenic tour easy to squeeze into a tight schedule.
  • Express morning trip to the Rhine Falls from central Zurich or the airport
  • See other regional landmarks, such as Laufen Castle and Munot, on the way
  • Spend your time at Rhine Falls taking photos and exploring as you wish
  • Learn about the cascades as you travel to the falls
What to Expect
After a pickup from Zurich Sihlquai Bus Terminal or the airport, you’ll travel by coach through the countryside and villages of north Switzerland. Gaze out of the window to see vineyards stretching alongside the German border, as you listen to your guide’s commentary about the region. Stop for photos by the centuries-old Laufen Castle perched dramatically on a rocky cliff and then arrive at the nearby Rhine Falls for an hour of free time. Pose for pictures against the backdrop of crashing water from the viewing platforms, and, if you visit during the summer, you can even pay a little extra to cruise to the middle of the falls for unbeatable views. Head back to Zurich at the agreed time, passing the Munot fortress in Schaffhausen on the way. You’ll finish with a drop-off at Zurich Airport or back at the bus terminal in the early afternoon.

We had just finished a river cruise from Amsterdam to Basel on the Rhine and spent a few days in Zurich afterwards. To see the falls completed our trip. We did the boat ride which got us very close to the falls. Lars, our tour guide was great! I highly recommend it.

We travelled to the Rhine Falls by train from Zurich main station. The falls are interesting and well worth the time. You can do as a half day trip.

It's a nice place to go when in Zurich ... Not to far away from the center of the town ..... A bit crowded but manageable ....... Views are good ..... We didn't do boating but I feel it must be done .....

We wished we took a train ourselves to the Rhine falls. The tour guide spoke bad English and Spanish. It would've been OK, if he gave more interesting information or told interesting stories. We also only had about one hour at the falls. If we have gone ourselves, we would've
