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.

Although some people have been underwhelmed at seeing the Rhine Falls, I still think it’s a magical and underrated attraction. It’s much better if you take the small boat to the island in between the water, as well as paying to walk beneath the castle to the tunnel viewpoint of the falls. I’ve been here 6 times and the absolute best time to come is during the early part of summer, when the flow of the Rhine reaches its peak. The volume of water cascading over the falls is almost double compared to winter.
Amazing scenery. Awesome boat ride. You can opt for only boat ride or you can choose to get a stop in the rocks between the flow of water. Choose to spend time in the rocks for some amazing photos. Look for trains travelling near the falls and over the bridge for nice photo shots. You can also walk around the parking area for scenic photo spots.
