Rhine Falls Tour from Zurich
US$ 55.47
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.

Relaxing trip to the falls...but not that big

Professional and courteous guide, timely bus, and comfortable seats were appreciated. The falls is not so big (high) but it has tremendous pressure which makes for great pictures and scenery. We were happy that we took it. It drops you off close to the city...More

The falls are amazing

I would highly recommend visiting this site but don't think its a half day tour. The water is rumbling and crashing at an incredible rate and is really beautiful. Spend the extra 9 Francs and do the boat tour [during the summer months]. They will...More
