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.

Place is definitely worth visiting if you happen to pass by. Easy to find and lots of parking space. You can also pay with € (or credit card) so you don't need to have CHF with you.

Awesome place to come to and see the beautiful waterfalls. I will be coming back to this place on a sunny day someday as well. Always amazed me how clear the water is and the amount of fish you can see walking over a tiny bridge.

The boat trip is enjoyable, particularly the stop in the middle of the falls. Two nice restaurant options. We had a great lunch.

The park situation is perfect. You can decide if you would like to walk, go by boat or just stay there and enjoy this beautiful nature! It is worth it!

The majestic Rheinfall is really a sight to behold. You can feel the power and majesty of this scenic waterway. There is always a rainbow or two above. Its commanding position, just above a hill commands awe and wonder when you approach it. Do not miss it when you are in Switzerland.

A magnificent sight. You can have a spectacular view of the falls through a viewing platform. The other side can be reached by a boat.

The volume of this scenic spot is supposed to be one of the largest in europe. Beautiful views and a mythology out of the Niebelungenleid. Close to the boarder with germany. Not up there with Niagara falls but still very scenic in its own right. Castle and boat ride optional.

It was a lovely place and we are glad we did not miss it. Two must do items at this place 1. Wait in the queue to see the water falls view from inside the cave - it is beautiful 2. Take the boat ride to go closer to the falls. Both will be enjoyable only when the water is... More

I liked it, but in my opinoin its just a waterfall like all the others. You could take a boat to see it up close, but it was overpriced. Oh, but well - its switzerland, what could you expect?
