Hi Anit,

I moved your post to the rail section. The Trip Report forum is for talking about your trip after you have traveled.

Your Swiss Travel Pass will cover the train to the RheinFalls: https://www.myswissalp s.com/rheinfall/gettin gthere

The STP doesn't cover the boats at the falls (they are short trips and not too much money) though it does cover boats at Lake Constance to Schaffhausen. https://www.myswissalp s.com/swisstravelpass/ validity

If you don't have a STP and are staying in the Zurich (ZVV) fare area, the 0900 day ticket is good value.

Travel via Winterthur and alight at Schloss Laufen am Rheinfall. You'll be on a local train.

The little station at Schloss Laufen am Rheinfall is an experience in itself.

The link quoted by Lucas above gives full details.

Enjoy your travels.

Hi Ankit

LUCAS'S link provides the timetables .

If you are traveling from Zurich ....the stop to hop off is Nuehausen ( on the route to Schaufhaussen)...about 40 mins on the train .

The boat rides , as indicated by Lucas , are not too expensive . The most interesting ride (route C if my memory holds) goes to the rock in the midst of the falls . The round trip on that is about CHF40 for an adult and lower for children . But keep in mind the last boat to the falls stops at 6 pm ..after which you have to take the long (but enjoyable) walk around back to this side of the falls (where you started).
