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.

  • Majestic falls, the power of the falls are just amazing, would stay longer if my spouse allow me, sadly could not soak up more of the falls.

  • Prime tourist attraction in Basel. Beautiful location with an amazing view. The walk up to the Rhine falls from the river banks is worth doing. There are options available for boat rides to reach the center of the river body to get a great view of the waterfall. The price is decent (EUR 20). Numerous shops and eateries available to enjoy the time in a wholesome way. Great destination for family weekend getaway.
  • This is the seventh time I have been here. Can really recommend it for the first really warm spring days. Easy to park, free parking at the castle side of the falls. Electric charging parking is also available. Do spend the extra money for the tickets to go down to the waterline to see the force of the water firsthand. We took the blue line and this was definitely worth the money. Well worth a visit!
