Create an itinerary including Rhine Falls
Experience the power of nature at Rhine Falls, Europe's largest waterfall. Formed during the last ice age, the thunderous waterfall once inspired Goethe to compare it to the "source of the ocean." A popular destination for day-trippers from Zurich, the fall spans 150 m (450 ft), its water plummeting from a height of 23 m (75 ft). Most visitors choose to admire and photograph this awesome natural spectacle from a medieval castle located on the left bank of the river, but you can also take a ferry all the way to a large rock sitting in the middle of the waterfall. If you do choose to come that close, don a raincoat first. A visit to Rhine Falls represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Neuhausen am Rheinfall online road trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • Beautiful place to visit when you are in or around Zurich... Good train connection makes journey quiet smooth. Boat rides are fun. For all Indians, there is also a very good small bistro where you can enjoy little bit of Indian delicacies and definitely souvenir shops and much more with breath taking views of Rhine falls. Its kind of half day trip from Zurich but depends upon how much time you want to spend... There is even a small castle which you enjoy...
  • Great experience! For a small fee you can go to a couple of viewing platforms that are really close to the most impressive parts of the waterfall. For a not-so-small fee you can get on a boat that can get you almost into the fall itself or even get you to the rock in the middle. For us both were awesome, but even just the viewing platforms might be enough of a thrill.
  • Best place to visit ! You can take different types of boat rides there. Maximum cost for boat ride is 20 euros. Also you might get a discount on boat ride if you are large group (20 people min.) You can take your lunch boxes with you and eat there. Also there is place to grill. The view is very beautiful. Check weather forecast before going!
  • Excellent . What a majestic place. If you take the boat ride, you will get even the best of the view. If you are a nature lover, it's one of the best place to be here. The best thing about the place is how you experience the water splashing. It's not one of the busiest place, so you will get the view and you can click some of the best snaps. I am looking forward to my next visit soon.
  • Absolutely amazing, the power and sheer raw force of the water pushing and falling through this gorge is absolutely worth the trip. There are a large number of scenic viewpoints on both sides of the river as well as historic buildings and beautiful parks. Take a day to explore and enjoy, the bridge across the river offers spectacular views. You're well supplied with both food and drink on both sides of the river and the views are spectacular.
