RHEINFALL THE WATERFALLS OF THE RHINE
The Rheinfall (Rhine falls) also known as the Schaffhausen Waterfalls, offer a grandiose spectacle.
In the centre stands a mighty rock that has been forcing the power of the elements for thousands of years and can be reached with a panoramic tour of the Rhine that allows you to enjoy the sight from close range.
From Laufen Castle, a path with elevators leads to the viewing platforms and provides barrier-free access to the wonder of the falls.
For the bravest there is even a canoe-hire service.
"The power of these waterfalls is fantastic. We reached the balcony overlooking the main jump and it's really impressive. But if you want to challenge nature, you must absolutely climb aboard the small boat, to reach the central spur and the spire in the center of the waterfall, something really unique.
The Rhine Falls are close to Lake Constance, which can easily be combined with a stay. Don't miss the village of Stein am Rhein and the island of Mainau."
For those who want a thrilling experience perhaps with their children, you can 'visit the adventure park "Am Rheinfall" on the north bank. Here you have the opportunity to climb the trees, choosing from eleven different routes and enjoying a breath-taking view of the waterfalls.
