Another way to travel to remember we don't always need to be in a hurry! Such a calm interlude - Nature at arm's length, incredible force of the river, people doing water sports or having picnics on little beaches, quaint towns. Watch for a surprising technical solution to the low wooden bridge...

The visit was absolutely stunning and we really enjoyed. They have different boat tours in the fall area and they are affordable, about 10 Franks per person.

It is a beautiful place for a walk. I recommend to visit the castle near the waterfall and to go by boat.

The waterfall is quite small and you can see it from all over the place, so there is definitely no need of paying the ticket. I see nothing that impressive in this attraction, except of the fact that it is the highest waterfall around. There is also not much to do here,except of paying over-priced gastronomy and souvenirs, which is,... More

If you want to plan half day trip from Zurich, you can visit this place. Not really big waterfall. But OK.

Just half an hour North of Zurich City you can find this natural escape. Free parking and affordable entry free (5 CHF). Its quite surprising the amount of water and the huge flow it has. Great half day trip!!

You need to pay an entry fee of 5 CHF, but worth it..the view is mind blowing and the speed with which the water flows...you need to see it

For Americans a comparison with Niagara is probably inevitable. Niagara's falls are taller and wider than the Rhine's but what is showcased for visitors at Niagara lacks evidence of how humans shaped the river and the land. Not so here, for much of what you see is a product of efforts to harness water power that go back to at... More

The modern boats go from Schaffhausen up to the beautiful towns of Diessenhoffen and Stein am Rhein. The latter being where the Rhein makes its 2nd apperence after coming through Lake Constance. Okay for tourists but we much prefer going down on our Dingy between Stein am Rhein and Schaffhausen, approx 4 hours. Easy quite fast water. Great for swimming
