How to reach the Rhine Falls
The Rhine Falls can be reached by train (recommended) and by car.
The trip to the falls
The easiest way to reach the Rhine Falls is taking a train to either the station called 'Neuhausen Rheinfall' or 'Schloss Laufen am Rheinfall' on the other side of the river. Both stations are located right next to the falls. It takes 45-60 minutes from Zurich to get there.
If you travel by car you can use one of the parking lots near Schloss Laufen or near Schlössli Wörth. If there's no parking space left you can park on parking lots farther away as well, from where you can take a bus to the Rhine Falls.
Dates of operation
The trains to the fall operate all year round. The boats operate from April to October. This also applies to the boats crossing the Rhine. You can visit the fall from November to March if you skip the boat section of the suggested route.
Tip: check the timetable before you start your trip.
