We intend to visit Rhine Falls from Zurich with our Swiss Travel Pass which I believe will give us free train ride. Understand there are 2 train route we could opt to -
1. Zurich HB to Neuhausen Rheinfall - to the north of the falls; OR
2. Zurich HB to Schloss Laufen am Rheinfall - to the south (crossing the river).
The one via Schloss Laufen am Rheinfall requires 1 change while the one via Neuhausen Rheinfall doesn't require any change. The earlier would require a little more traveling time. Which route would you advice, based on our unfamiliarity and scenary etc?
From a previous forum (which has since been closed), we could use our Swiss Travel Pass for the boats as long as they're operated by the URH (Schweizerische Schifffahrtsgesellschaft Untersee und Rhein). How do we identify them? Understand there might be German boats too but they're not covered. Would the Swiss Half Fare Card applies for the boat ride by URH too?
