Rhine Falls Tour from Zurich

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
See the Rhine Falls in the morning and be back in Zurich for lunch. Perfect for those who want to see one of Europe’s largest waterfalls but are short on time, the excursion offers round-trip transport from central Zurich or the airport, plus an hour at the dramatic cascades. Travel between June and August to take a cruise right to the middle of the falls (own expense).
  • Express morning trip to the Rhine Falls from central Zurich or the airport
  • See other regional landmarks, such as Laufen Castle and Munot, on the way
  • Spend your time at Rhine Falls taking photos and exploring as you wish
  • Learn about the cascades as you travel to the falls
What to Expect
After a pickup from Zurich Sihlquai Bus Terminal or the airport, you’ll travel by coach through the countryside and villages of north Switzerland. Gaze out of the window to see vineyards stretching alongside the German border, as you listen to your guide’s commentary about the region. Stop for photos by the centuries-old Laufen Castle perched dramatically on a rocky cliff and then arrive at the nearby Rhine Falls for an hour of free time. Pose for pictures against the backdrop of crashing water from the viewing platforms, and, if you visit during the summer, you can even pay a little extra to cruise to the middle of the falls for unbeatable views. Head back to Zurich at the agreed time, passing the Munot fortress in Schaffhausen on the way. You’ll finish with a drop-off at Zurich Airport or back at the bus terminal in the early afternoon.

We had just finished a river cruise from Amsterdam to Basel on the Rhine and spent a few days in Zurich afterwards. To see the falls completed our trip. We did the boat ride which got us very close to the falls. Lars, our tour guide was great! I highly recommend it.

We travelled to the Rhine Falls by train from Zurich main station. The falls are interesting and well worth the time. You can do as a half day trip.

It's a nice place to go when in Zurich ... Not to far away from the center of the town ..... A bit crowded but manageable ....... Views are good ..... We didn't do boating but I feel it must be done .....
