THE RHEINFALL

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.

 

A grandiose spectacle: several hundred cubic metres of water per second thunderously fall into the void for 23 metres from a basin 150 metres wide.

 

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.
