Rhine Falls Tour from Zurich
From US$54.70
Overview
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.

Amazing waterfall

Chose to do the tour as I was alone but I think next time I may go alone. Amazing waterfall but I felt slightly rushed after the boat trip. Really enjoyed the information on the ride to and from Zurich though

The tour is half day so approx 4 hours and started at 8 or 9 am so I don't think you'd manage it if the flight is 1pm but you can look at taking public transport there and t touring the falls as that may work
