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.

Excellent place to visit and spend a few hours. The 15 min boat ride near the falls will allow you to see it up close and you'll hardly get wet unless it's really windy. It's easy to get really good pics both from the boat and on the opposite shore. The whole area is very scenic. You can even walk... More

We got off at Neuhausen instead off at Schloss Laufen am Rheinfall railway station and walked towards the falls. We are so glad that we made that mistake because the walk treated us with picturesque views and some 'us' time. There were no tourists so no selfie sticks intruding our space so managed to get some of the best shots.... More

It is not Niagara or the Angel falls. But, boy it is breathtakingly scenic. Get off at the Rheinfall or Neuhausen station and you can walk down to the falls. They have beautified the area around the falls and now there is a promenade as well around the falls where you can walk, sit, click and admire the beauty. Please... More

We took a tour bus from Zurich to visit Rheinfall. The ride was about one hour. The falls were beautiful and one could feel the power of the water. The castle at the top of the falls was an added attraction. We did a 25 minute boat tour to get up close to the falls. There was another tour that... More

It's the best and biggest water fall in europe. You can't compare to Niagara Falls in canada but there is nothing in europe that can match to Rhine Falls. It's very easy to reach to Rhine Falls train station from Zurich. It takes around 1.5 hrs and walkable from Rhine Falls train station. There is boat tour which is private... More

Really glad that we made this side trip on our way from Strasbourg to Vaduz. Easy to find along with easy parking. We walked all along the falls---a lot of different great views. We also took a short boat ride out to the falls. This gets you up close and personal with the size and the power of the falls.

Get close to feel the massive force of water! Boat trips can be done for crossing from one shore to the other, with close approach to the cascade. To be tried

We had visited Triberg Waterfalls the day before which were one of Germany's tallest falls and been somewhat disappointed, but Rheinfall was exactly the opposite. They exceeded all expectations. Very impressive. Wide, with lots of movement and multiple great vantage points from all sides of the river, as well as from boats if you choose. We would highly recommend seeing... More
