Full description

Switzerland is a small alpine country setting proudly in the heart of the Alps offering boundless natural sceneries wherever persons find themselves.

Among the most visited sights here in Switzerland is the Rhine Falls - Europe’s largest waterfall. It is listed in the top ten things to do in Switzerland.

AlpExcursion invites you to experience this heavenly miracle up-close during a private journey departing from your accommodation or any desired location in Zurich City.

Enjoy the comfort and privacy while being welcomed by your driver-guide at the lobby of your hotel to head to Neuhausen am Rheinfall through the scenic road. On the way, get the advantage of the free WiFi in all our fleet while capturing the Swiss beauty and posting your special moments.

Upon arrival, visit the Laufen Castle (Schloss Laufen) that goes back thousands of years. Plenty of historical information is available inside the castle.

One should also take one of the offered boat rides to get the  vibes of the Rhine Falls where the adventurous thrills are guaranteed.

There are four different types of experiences, as explained below:

The Short Trip is the Blue Line with a duration of fifteen minutes and takes you as close as possible to the mighty water masses. It runs from April till October.

The Rock Tour is represented by the Yellow Line and takes you to the rock located in the heart of the falls. It is an opportunity not to be missed while being surrounded by churning water. You are treated to a unique 360° panoramic view. It lasts for thirty minutes, including the time of admiring the views on the rock.

The third option is the audio guide tour known as the Pink Line. The captain takes you to exciting spots by and below the Rhine Falls while benefiting from the attractive information about the Rhine Falls, which is available in 18 different languages. The approximate duration of it is thirty minutes.

The last choice is the Rhine crossing Red Line. Only in a three minutes’ ferry ride you will pass between the two banks of the River Rhine (Wörth Castle and Laufen Castle).

An impressive observation platform is also standing amid the waterfall, where you can capture photos with your beloved ones.

Another must-see site located on our way is the historic Schaffhausen Town. It takes you backwards in time with its painted facades of the houses in the Old Town, fascinating abbeys and picturesque vineyards.

In the upper part of the town, you will have the chance to admire the unique circular Munot Fortress, an eye-catching landmark dating back to the 16th century.

So much fun is waiting for you combined with magnificent unrepeatable sceneries operated only by Eventually, your driver-guide will give you a smooth return to the initial meeting point in Zurich City carrying a memorable day.
