Rhine Falls Tour from Zurich
US$55.21
Overview
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).
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.

Fun, nice nature trip

Worth while to add boat trip to this excursion. Its a small lake with impressive falls. Boat is open so you will get wet. Part of the fun. My recent knee surgery appreciated the easy entrance onto boat. But there are many steps to get...More

Great view, don't bring stroller

The falls are magnificant for the amount of time we were able to look at the various platforms views. When we asked our tour guide if we should bring our stroller down to the falls and boat tour, we were advised that we had minimal...More

Dear Maxwell Thank you very much for your feedback which is highly appreciated. I’m very sorry to hear, that you weren’t informed well by the guide about the steps down to the fall. There is an elevator for the first part to the viewing platform...More
