Tips

  • Vanessa Kopp

    The Rhine Falls is an impressive natural spectacle, especially after the snow has melted. The largest waterfall in Europe is 150 meters wide and 23 meters high. In summer, up to 600,000 liters per second flow down the Rhine Falls. The age is estimated at approximately 15,000 years.

    Access to the north bank is free. On the southern side of the river, entry costs CHF 5 (including entry to Laufen Castle on the Rhine Falls and access to the viewing platforms).

    Top Highlite in Switzerland 🇨🇭. If you go there for a trip from Germany, you have to enter the Navi avoid toll roads, then you save yourself the Switzerland Vinaigrette.

    Always worth seeing, the Rhine Falls near Neuhausen CH. Beautiful hiking trails and round gates are possible on both sides of the Rhine. Even with children and prams are the most routes to do. Always a highlight.

    Almost more interesting than the waterfalls themselves are the visitors who flow through here as well as the water ...

    This magnificent, stone bench makes such an ancient impression that centuries ago the damsels may have sat there and looked at the Rhine Falls.

    A unique natural spectacle. Especially recommended in spring, when the snow melt starts.

    Not quite as old as Schloss Laufen or the Schlössli Wörth is the Mühleradhaus, but still makes a lot of impression. The still running mill wheel has no function this year, the house is an "event location" part of the Rheinfallgastronomie.

    It is the largest waterfall in Europe and is always worth a visit. You are also welcome to go hiking in the area.
