    Rhine Falls
    Stop: 75 minutes - Admission included
    Enjoy approx. one hour of leisure time at the mighty Rhine Falls, one of Switzerland's major attractions. Delight in unique views of Europe's biggest waterfalls from the panoramic lift and see how an average of 700'000 liters of water per second plunge across a width of 150 meters into the basin below. A beautiful, short stroll on the Belvedere panoramic trail takes you to the viewing platform right above the falls where you feel the spindrift of the rumbling waters. Take an optional boat ride (summer only) close to the falls. Visit the Historama at the patriarchal castle to learn more about the interesting history of this unique place.

Highlights
  • Express morning trip to the Rhine Falls from central Zurich
  • 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, 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. The tour concludes at Sihlquai 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.

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 .....
