The magnificent Rhine Falls are located on the High Rhine near the town of Schaffhausen in northern Switzerland. These falls are 150 m wide and 23 m high. The average water flow doubles during the spring and summer, so these seasons are the most favourable for a visit. You have a chance to get up close to the falls by boat, from viewing platforms, or through an adventure trail. One great way to experience them is to take a boat to the r​ock in the middle of the falls and feel the great power of nature. You can also visit the nearby medieval castle Schloss Laufen, ​which also has spectacular views. On August 1st, Swiss National Day, you can check out an impressive fireworks display over the falls.
