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.

Went with 3 friends and it was simply glorious! Gorgeous views of the falls on the walk down with observation points at many levels. The gift shop was excellent too! I got some little trinkets! Only downside was both lifts were out of service which was annoying but luckily it wasn't too bad a walk back up.

5CHF for person is more than nice price for that amazing view :) You can see the energy and power of water. Quite lot of stairs ( for ill or older people).

We visited the waterfall on a pretty murky day and it still looked impressive. As the clouds broke and the sun shine on to it, the water looked pretty amazing. At night they direct white light on to it and from the restaurant opposite the sight is quite stunning cascading over the rocks. You can walk up to the unused... More

From photos online, I expected a much smaller waterfall but in real life, it's actually quite impressive. The car park is just outside the ticket booth, there is an elevator for strollers/wheelchair users but it does only take you so far. We have an umbrella stroller so it wasnt an issue for us to carry it further down some stairs... More

Nice relaxing day out with young children. Only drawback was it's a long old hill from Car Park to the river with a Pushchair.

We didn't originally plan to go to this place. We just saw it on the train and we decided to go not knowing that our ticket within Zurich does not cover this trip. While on the train back to Zurich we got controlled and we had to pay 50 Euro per person (we originally told the controller that we don't... More

Stunning and beautiful waterfall. A couple of great spots to view the waterfall. For extra cash you can catch a boat that takes you very close within meters of the waterfalls and you can climb up a tower on a tiny island right in the middle. Worth your visit!

Amazing beautiful waterfall and you will see a beautiful clear shining rainbow. What a fantastic place, the sound of water flow and showers on your face if you stand close to the walls near waterfall. Magical experience at this thrilling place and great to see the waterfall. We couldn't go in the boat as we were little late that gets... More
