One of Europe’s most spectacular waterfalls
Impressive 23 m high and 150 m wide – the Rhine Falls near Schaffhausen is one of the largest and most water-rich waterfalls in Europe. It is located west of the lower Lake Constance in Switzerland.
From different platforms you get breathtaking views of the enormous water masses.
In addition to a boat tour, Laufen Castle with its old walls and the view of the Rhine Falls is highly recommended. The castle restaurant also offers culinary delights with a spectacular view.
