Among the most visited sights in Switzerland is the Rhine Falls - Europe’s largest waterfall. It is on the list of the top ten things to do in Switzerland and is surely one of the most magnificent places to see here.

AlpExcursion invites you to experience this heavenly miracle during a private journey departing from your accommodation in Lucerne.

Our fleet is accommodated with everything for your comfort including WiFi so that you can share your experience in Switzerland with your friends.

The Pink Line offers an audio-guided tour. Within about thirty minutes, the captain will take you to exciting spots by and below the Rhine Falls while getting interesting information about the falls, available in 18 different languages.

The Red Line offers a short three-minute ferry ride that will take you past the two banks of the Rhine River (Wörth Castle and Laufen Castle).
