Rhine Falls Schaffhausen

Visit the Rhine Falls - by canoe! (CH)

Europe’s biggest waterfall

With a width of over 150 metres, the Falls hurl immense quantities of water, thundering and seething, 23 metres down over the precipice.The most impressive view of the water's dramatic power is from the Rhine Falls basin, on the Schaffhausen side of the river. From here it is possible to take a boat rideout to the central rocks. An experience not be misssed!

From Laufen castle, perched high above the Rhine Falls, a footpathtakes you past the seething mass of water to the "Fischetz" platform, directly next to the Falls.

Or how about taking a pleasant boat trip through the unique Rhineland countryside as far as Rheinau? After the exciting Rhine Falls experience, a culinary treat awaits you in the Schlössli Wörth restaurant, the Restaurant Park am Rheinfall or Schloss Laufen. And adrenaline junkies can enjoy the thrill of the largest rope park in Switzerland, and some spectacular views.
