Rhine Falls Neuhausen
Explore the largest waterfall in Europe
The Rhine Falls, located in Neuhausen, Switzerland (near Schaffhausen), are particularly worth seeing in spring and early summer. Here, due to the melting snow, the flow rate of the Rhine is particularly high and the natural spectacle is therefore particularly impressive. There is a boat service on site that can take you to the rock in the waterfall or to the other side of the Rhine. The tour to the rock is particularly worth experiencing.
How do we get there? From Konstanz/Reichenau there are two fundamentally different ways to travel by car. Via the B31 and the A81 towards Schaffhausen. The A4 motorway, which begins at the border, can be used without a vignette until Schaffhausen.
The route via Kreuzlingen is a little slower but has a more beautiful landscape. From here you always drive along the lake through the tranquil Swiss towns and can experience how Lake Constance becomes the Rhine. From Schaffhausen there are shuttle buses to the Rhine Falls. A boat trip combined with a visit to the Rhine Falls is not recommended, as the time spent in Schaffhausen or at the Rhine Falls is too short.
Tip: If you want to take it easy, then drive back via the Höri peninsula on the way back. There are lots of vegetable farmers and farm shops there, so the souvenirs for home are already secured. Of course, you can also pay a visit to the Hermann Hesse or Otto Dix House in Gaienhofen on the way.
