The Rhine Falls, the biggest waterfall in Europe, offer the visitors 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.

I visited this beautiful waterfall with a group. though case may be not the same in other days, that particular day it was crowded. We took a boat trip and reached very much near to the waterfall which the largest plain waterfall in the Europe as per literature. Man made platforms are available and that facilitate a photo lovers.

We went by ourselves. We took the train from Zurich ( Oerlikon) station and then got down at the Rhine falls station. It took us about 40 minutes one way. it is a calm and a quite place. You dont feel like time passing. Since elevators are available any person can easily can get there.

We have been to Rheinfall many times, and our last visit with family was in Nov 2016. As usual had a great time, specially walking all cross, over the bridge up the mountain on other side. Highly recommend for everyone. There are parking on both sides, depends on how the navigator takes you there :) Must also try the boat... More

If you are in the Schaffhausen area then definitely go see these falls. Not Niagara or Igacu but worth a visit. Its a short bus or train ride from Schaffhausen and you need about half an hour to see the site and walk around. Nice coffee shops overlooking the falls.Then go to Stein am Rhein

We visited the rheinfalls during the swiss national day and it was amazing. It was raining that day but the falls were magnificent. Powerful. Having seen the niagara falls, i think the rheinfalls deserves to be called the european niagara falls. Plus, when you visit the falls during the swiss national day you get to see fireworks for 50minutes. Always... More

Wonderful view over the rhein and part of the city. There is a large parking while arriving to the place. We took the stairs down where you can be so close to the rhein falls. In spring or summer you can take a small boat but we did not this time.

This was a side trip from Zurich on our Rhine Christmas markets river cruise. The boat trip was nice getting us very close to the bottom of the falls. Although we enjoyed our visit, it was cold and the area is probably better enjoyed during warmer weather.

Fantastic waterfall. If you are in Swiss, you must visit the falls. Take a ferry and experience the falls as close as possible. Easily accessible with tram from city.

You can reach Rhine falls within 40 minutes from Zurich/ Wallisellen. Very nice attraction and you can spend some time with the boat ride and hike to the castle. We have visited it on a weekend evening. As per the information received the last boat ride is scheduled at 5.00 pm. However souvenir shops were closed on that evening. You... More

Awesome place to come to and see the beautiful waterfalls.great me how clear the water is and the amount of fish you can see walking over the small bridge.boat trip is very good that brings you right up to the falls.well worth a visit and lovely distraction from the norm.
