Overview

This short three-hour trip to Rhine Falls is perfect for nature-lovers! Rhine Falls is Europe's biggest waterfall, located in Northern Switzerland. The beautiful view of the countryside and breath-taking falls are a nice change from the snowy Swiss Alps.

Along the way, you'll pass through Switzerland's Wine Region, and see a 16th century castle. A multilingual guide will accompany you throughout the trip, pointing out and explaining significant sites.

Itinerary

You can board the coach for this tour at Zurich Airport's Reisebus Terminal, or at the Sihlquai bus parking at Zurich's main train station. A multilingual guide who speaks English, Spanish, and German will accompany you throughout your trip.

The journey to Rhine Falls will take you through Northern Switzerland, close to the border of Switzerland and Germany. This area is famous for its vineyards, and is home to many small villages such as Schaffhausen - where the historical 16th century Munot Fortress is located - and Marthalen, a charming farming village.

Finally, you'll arrive at Europe's famous Rhine Falls. At 23 metres high and 150 metres long, Rhine Falls is Europe's biggest waterfall. If the magnificent view isn't enough, summer visitors can take a boat ride to a rock in the middle of the falls, an unforgettably beautiful - and unforgettably wet - experience.

After exploring the falls, you'll get back on the coach, taking a short trip through part of Germany before arriving back at your starting point in Zurich.
