These are the largest waterfalls in europe in terms of the volume of water. Its in a very scenic location, very well connected by train. A must see. The easiest way is to take a train to the schaffhausen station. Regular trains available from Basel SBB and Zurich. From Schaffhausen station you can either take a bus or a local sbahn to rhine falls station. Its 2 min walk from this station. There is a well defined walk around the fall which take 2 hrs, but it is well worth the walk. It gives you the view of the falls from different vantage points and ends with a stroll along the river bank. Now with the fall colours in full bloom, its a awesometime to visit this place.

Schaffhausen is a big town so food and accomodation is not a problem. There is a youth hostel run by HI as well.

From the park…
