Schaffhausen Rhine Falls


The region offers many different experiences: learn about the history of the Rhine Falls in the Historama and on a tour through Schloss Laufen. Experience the impressive natural spectacle up close from various perspectives and be inspired.

Standing on one of the viewing platforms opens up new perspectives. Just beneath you, the roaring water thunders over the Rhine Falls cliffs, the spray foams and you hear the thundering and rumbling of Europe’s largest waterfall. The Belvedere viewing platform is conveniently reached along the panoramic trail (wheelchair and stroller accessible). The Känzeli and Fischnetz viewing platforms, however, are only accessible via steps. Our tip: take the panoramic lift to return to the visitor centre. The view from the lift is extraordinary.
