He who has not yet seen the Rhine Falls must definitely do so at least once in his lifetime! The Rhine Falls are the largest falls in Europe, measuring 150m in width and 23m in height, with an average of 600m3 per second of water plunging over the falls in summer.

(At the time of this hike in June of 2016, after so much rain this spring, the volume of water going over the falls increased by 50% to 875m3 per second)

This is a pleasant and non-strenuous hike starting in the very pretty old town of Schaffhausen with its signature benches and the Munot Tower. (If you have the time before starting on the walk, the stairs to the Tower/Castle lead off from the main street in the old town)

In just one hour you reach the falls, where you must spend some time admiring the might of the water that flows through this point. There are various options from here to take a boat ride to the other riverbank below the Castle “Schloss Laufen”, or to very close to the Falls (with the option to climb to the top of the landmark boulders in the middle of the falls – no access if the volume of water is too large), or down the river a bit and back.

From the falls the walk continues for the next hour near the river bank first on the right and then on the left, and for the final hour before approaching Rheinau through a pleasant weaving trail through the forest parallel to but higher than the river.

The structures on the island at Rheinau were formerly a Benedictine Monastery, and the church with its magnificent interior is an impressive example of Baroque architecture and one of Switzerland’s most significant religious structures.

I did this tour from the other side starting at Rheinau so that I could visit the museum on the castle on the hill, then get down close to the falls by paying a small fee (note closed in icy weather). Once back up on top (via the lift if lazy) you can walk across the rail bridge to the other side then along to list the Schaffhausen side, which is easier but more touristy. I did not enjoy the boat ride much as it is quick, very wet & expensive. If you have transport then a trip up to the Munot (fort) on top of the hill above the city gives great views, small parking fee there. PS: The old town
