The Rheinfall in Schaffhausen


The Rheinfall - or Rhine Falls in English - near Schaffhausen is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Europe and a popular tourist destination on the other side of the Swiss border, about an hour's drive from us. 

With a height of 50 meters and a width of around 150 meters, these waterfalls are an impressive sight formed by a significant drop in the river Rhine, plunging over large rocks, creating a huge spray.

The Rhine Falls are famous for their boat trips, which can take visitors very close to the water. The area surrounding the falls also offers hiking trails and viewpoints from which you can admire the natural spectacle from different angles.

The formation of the Rhine Falls dates back millions of years and is the result of river erosion, which over time shaped the rocks and created the waterfall. The islands in the Rhine Falls, of which there are three, also contribute to the spectacular scenery.

The waterfalls are particularly impressive in spring, when the snowmelt causes the Rhine's waters to swell. But at any time of year, the waterfall offers a fascinating experience for visitors from all over the world.

As it crosses a national border - don't forget your ID! On the way back, you can also take a detour to Stein am Rhein, which is famous for its well-preserved old town center with magnificently painted house facades.
