Experience the power of nature at Rhine Falls, Europe's largest waterfall. Formed during the last ice age, the thunderous waterfall once inspired Goethe to compare it to the "source of the ocean." A popular destination for day-trippers from Zurich, the fall spans 150 m (450 ft), its water plummeting from a height of 23 m (75 ft). Most visitors choose to admire and photograph this awesome natural spectacle from a medieval castle located on the left bank of the river, but you can also take a ferry all the way to a large rock sitting in the middle of the waterfall. If you do choose to come that close, don a raincoat first. A visit to Rhine Falls represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Neuhausen am Rheinfall online road trip planner to plot your vacation.

Loved It! Awesome experience. Best way to reach here is Train. Best hours to Visit : An hour before Sunset (If u are not much keen on exploring building). Crowd starts decreasing by around 6 PM. So you get peace and place for experiencing the view and to click beautiful pictures. However, if you wish to take ferry / gondola rides or restaurants, reach early, as these close by 7 PM
This was worth the trip. parking was also very easy. You can have all the views of the fall just by walking. No. need to take a ferry. May be just the 3 min ferry to go across if the day is too hot. We easily spent 4 hours just walking and sitting around lake.
